I wrote a little review for Carolyn's book after she asked me to read it. I thought I would share it with others that might enjoy it as well. I'm not a 'stellar' reviewer but I did want to share my opinion of the book:

I read and also reviewed "Raising Abel" and thought it was a great book.  It is especially good for parents or prospective parents who are raising kids with a history of trauma.

Thanks for telling us about this book. I plan to read it in my Kindle app. I'm an adoptive mother to a very hurt child and it sounds like I need to read this.


Raising and educating free-range kids in our farmhouse at the maple woods. In March, find us in the sugarbush making pure maple syrup.

I just read your post on another thread and I've got to say, incompetent just doesn't go with the way you write. :)

 

I am "Carolyn Nash." That's my pen name. I'm so sorry your child was hurt. If you think I can help in any way, please let me know. I know what it would have meant to me if I'd had someone to chat with who had been through it. So much good luck to you.

Oh, and I saw your formula above. If that's a crazy home, then I want to be crazy! It sounds great.

Thank you. It is crazy, but it's the life I chose and I love it.  : )

Dog gone it! I wasn't getting any notifications that there were replies... Oh well.

I'm glad you love it. Me too!
