I hate to start this sounding like I want to return an item at Walmart, but I have conservatorship for a 11 year old girl that is not related to me. This child has been in therapy 4 months now and we have ADHD,RAD,ODD just getting started. I cannot help this little girl. She needs long term care and every place I turn to just keeps passing me to the next place. We lost our insurance so no one wants to touch her. Im looking for any and all advice and I am hoping you can help. Thanks, Belinda

Little A has been in counseling for ADHD for almost two years and counseling/tharaplay for RAD for almost one year. I also see no results just a bunch of wasted time and a five year old that will soon over power me. The therapists keep telling us "It takes time", "They are seeing results" they don't live it 24 hours a day. I bet you have helped her in someway, it is just hard to see those little things when the big picture is so overwhelming. Reading your story has made me seriously think about how long we can care for little A and keep the rest of the family safe. So thank you for sharing your story you gave me a lot to think about.
