hi we are currently transtioning a 12 motnh baby to live with us permanetly. she has been with the same foster carer for six months and before that was in a negletful situation and was no bonding or attachment......the current foster mum has attachemnt and the little girl is meeting normal milestones, is laughing and smiling and does have attachment with her foster mum etc but does have some attachemnt issues with others (insecure attachment issues)....we are working on transfering the attachment to me. Will we be able to help her if she has RAD because she is so young? therefore may have a better chance of developing a secure relationship?
oh we are getting a proffesional to observe interactions and talk about attachemnt etc and how we should safely do the transitioning
thanks any help appreciated
