Google has been my best friend the past couple months, and I read some signs of abuse/neglect. He is still showing those, I'm not sure if it's something that I am missing seeing he needs or stuff from the past that is still bothering him.   Oh yes I was not very pleased at all to walk past him smell poop really bad, I pulled out the back of his pants a little bit so I could see and yes sure enough there it was. I'm sure everyone hear can imagine how happy I was to have to...
I have posted on here before, about my foster child, my husband and I are currently in proceedings to adopt him. Here's a little bit more information on what is going on. Every time I make him mad, tell him he can't have something, not to do something, normal everyday NO type of things. He poops and pees his pants on purpose. Everytime I punish him for something he does it! I have tried every type of punishment I can possibly think of, Standing in a corner, coloring at...
Foster son now has a play therapist that will come to our home twice a week for an hour at a time, along with his regular child psychologist three days a week. We had a court date on Monday and were given Primary Physical Custody. The only issue now is the grandparents rights in PA. He did live with his grandparents for 12 consecutive months so they are entitled to visitation, but would they still be entitled to it if the grandparents were involved in why CPS took the...
Things have been going smoothly so far. Few minor issues here and there but that is what is expected. My husband and I have had my 3 year old niece for a week now. (No abandonment and this isn't permanent) My sister is sick and in hospital right now. My niece is terrified of the dark, so I have been leaving my bedroom door open at night for her, and for foster son in case they need anything. Last week things started heating up with the hubby and this awkward feeling like...
I don't know much about the kinds of trauma he has endured. The caseworker hasn't given much information. He did tell me that there was alot of physical violence. And that his biomom was given a week to clean what I consider normal daily stuff: Dishes, vacuuming, picking up toys, laundry, moping, sweeping, etc. And she couldn't do it. So from what I gathered the home was disgusting. He has opened up about his moms ex pushing on the back of his head really hard and...
The caseworker is helping us find an attachment therapist in our area and he is going to see what other services are available to our little one. I really hope he finds something. He has been very helpful so far so I am hoping he sticks to it. Other than that, everything is going as smoothly as it can I guess. He is now starting to shut down when we try to talk to him, he just sits or stands there with this little look on his face that says, "I'm mad, get away from me."...
Something I forgot to add in the main beginning post, is that both my husband and I have caught him hurting himself. He digs his face open with some pretty nasty scratches, I have caught him biting his leg. I have seen this self harming behaviors in teenagers or  young adults that I have helped through it, but I have never seen anything like that in a four year old child. It makes me so sad to think that a four year old would feel he has to do that instead of talking to...
The being very manipulative part is what scares me the most. If we can't get control of it now, we are speaking with caseworker about possibly adopting if it is in the cards for us, then we are going to have alot more problems down the road as time goes on. Thank you I will definately order it today.
I just had the biggest scare of my life. I woke up at 12:35am to pee, and foster child was not in his bed. I looked all over my house for him for about 25 minutes. The longest 25 minutes of my life. Only to find him hiding in one of my kitchen cupboards that are really close to the floor, sneaking and eating three pudding cups. Yes I am happy he is fine and safe but that is not my point. I looked for him frantically and was panicing thinking oh my god how do you lose a...
My husband and I have been fostering for about 15 months now. We foster children between the ages of 0-6. We have had four foster children so far, who were babies. About a month ago we got a call asking if we would be willing to take in a four year old boy, and of course we agreed. He has expierienced alot of emotional trauma, and suffered some physical abuse. We take him to supervised visitations with his biological mother and her parents every two weeks as ordered by...
