Practical attachment describes developmental, social and emotional issues of young children who spent Category Home Family Parenting Adoptive Parents...... promoting attachment in children with special parenting needs that are often confusedwith attachment issues so that Not all children from orphanages fit this
Have you adopted a complicated child? Or are you thinking about it, and wondering how to prepare? Or wondering if you can handle it?
Are you looking for strategies for promoting attachment in children with special parenting needs, such as children from institutions or backgrounds of neglect?
Are you struggling with professionals to find a diagnosis that fits and is actually helpful to you when you seek services?
Welcome to my world.
This web site may help you understand some useful concepts and strategies for young children who have problems associated with living in an orphanage during their infancy. You need to be aware of problems that are often confused with attachment issues so that you won't be caught off guard if they should develop in your child. Not all children from orphanages fit this profile, so your experience may be different. You won't find any horror stories here, just preparation. I want you to adopt these kids! I want you to feel that you have the information you need to help these kids have a meaningful life. I want you to feel ready, willing and able to love, protect and parent these kids in ways that are appropriate to their developmental needs. Every last one of them! A loving family for every child...
By request, I am posting articles, correspondence, essays, checklists and observations that I have written over the past 6 years. Much of this has appeared on adoption-related e-mail lists, and some has been included in newsletters and booklets. These topics are revisited as new people begin struggling with these issues. I hope this web site will help make these ideas easier to find. If you are looking for statistical data or scientific research, you will need to look elsewhere. This is a practical site. Everything here is based on observation and input by adoptive parents. This is not the final word, or the only approach.

4. Key Issues - Children With Special Health Care Needs
for children Reimbursement and Coverage issues for children's Brief (66k); MentalHealth attachment (46k); Methodologies for children with special Health Care
The health care needs of all children are special and distinct from those of adults, but the term "children with special health care needs" refers to a group of children who require specialized health care, habilitation, and rehabilitation services. Frequently children with special health care needs (CSHCN) are limited - or have potential limitations - in their ability to function because of a chronic or congenital illness, a major trauma, a developmental disability, or exposure to a serious or life-threatening condition. Because they are devoted to serving all children, regardless of their condition, children's hospitals dedicate a disproportionately large amount of their care to children with special health care needs. N.A.C.H. Public Policy Position
N.A.C.H. advocates that the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) implement specific requirements, which a state must meet before it can receive federal approval for mandatory enrollment of children with special health care needs in Medicaid managed care. N.A.C.H. also advocates implementation of these requirements in the instance of states seeking to renew or extend existing Medicaid managed care waivers, not just new ones.

Early institutionalization increases the risk of attachment difficulties 5 . It Adoptionof Institutionalized children At Risk for special Needs. General issues.
Preparing Families for Adoption of Instiutionalized Children with Special Needs and/or Children At Risk for Special Needs
By Dr. Victor Groza and Daniela F. Ileana International adoptions have increased since the end of World War II and currently represent about 10% of all adoptions in the United States . While children are adopted from every continent, different countries have been primary sources for international adoption. Although 6,500 children were adopted from Germany by American families during the years 1963 to 1981 , before 1990 most international adoptees came from Asia or South America. Beginning in 1990, international adoptions increased from Eastern and Central Europe. European adoptions, particularly in 1990 and 1991, were predominantly from Romania. By 1992, more children were adopted from the republics of the former Soviet Union rather than Eastern Europe. In 1995, there was an increase in children arriving from China. While the history and culture of each of these countries are different, there are many similarities in their child welfare systems that affect the issues faced by families who adopt internationally. Child welfare systems, in most emerging countries, are institutional or group-care-based systems, unlike the United States, which is a foster-family-based system. Thus, the overwhelming majority of children adopted internationally have spent time in institutional settings. Many of these children are placed at infancy or shortly thereafter. Most of these children are not orphaned in the traditional sense, in that they still have birth parents who are alive but are unable or unwilling to care for them. Often, these children become part of the child welfare system due to family poverty. There are many similarities in the structure of the institutional systems, even though they are located in different countries. For example, the structure of the system in Romania, as described by

Attaching in Adoption
By Deborah D. Gray
Order Book from Amazon

Review by Allison Martin
A three year old girl wanders off at a street fair and approaches strangers for hugs, instead of looking back for her mother... A six year old boy recently adopted from Russia breaks every toy he touches... A five year old girl anxiously attempts to stay close to her mother, crying "Mom, Mom, Mom, Mom" every time she leaves the room... Another five year old girl falls apart at bedtime each night, as she seems to relive the drama of her early abandonment in a Chinese orphanage. These children, and their families, are coping with attachment issues. And now there is a remarkable new book to help them. Attaching in Adoption by Deborah Gray provides a comprehensive and knowledgeable overview of the causes, diagnosis and treatment of attachment issues of adopted children. Gray is an experienced family therapist and clinical social worker who specializes in grief, trauma and attachment. Her unique blend of empathy and practical advice makes this an excellent resource for anyone who has questions about bonding and attachment. Most adoptive parents will learn something from this book - about their children and about themselves. Gray defines attachment as an enduring family relationship that is formed over time and with shared experience. Of crucial importance to adoptive families, Gray reminds us that the loss of an attachment figure is a cause for a lengthy and painful grief. Other tragic events - such as traumatic loss, severe deprivation, abuse - can impede a healthy attachment process. However, as children attach securely, they learn that they are lovable, that they can trust their parents, and that others will help them with their needs.

Staff PARENT SUPPORT WEEKEND Come join what many adoptive parents have described as a well-deserved get away. Twice a year adoptive mothers and fathers travel to the Kinard Conference Center for a weekend filled with fun, relaxation, and to attend workshops. While the kids stay home with a caregiver or spend the weekend with friends/family, moms and dads are fishing, getting a massage, and taking a walk in the woods. The weekend is also filled with workshops on topics relating to parenting, adoption, specific disorders or diagnosis, and community resources. Each weekend retreat new topics are presented so each retreat is different from the last. Saturday night hosts a social event where parents get to be kids again and come together in a fellowship of fun and games. Sunday ends the weekend with a cookout and volleyball game. It is always amazing to see the smiles on relaxed faces at the end of the weekend. You wonÂ’t find a more supportive atmosphere anywhere! So how do you qualify to join this group? You must be an adoptive parent living in South Carolina. It does not matter whether you adopted domestically, internationally, or if your adopted children are related to you biologically. All types of adoptive families are welcomed. There is no cost to attend this weekend retreat. However, your children will not be able to attend with you.

Adoption and Attachment: Strengthening Family Connections
There is no denying the inherent strength of the bond that exists between a mother and her infant. It is the very framework of the child's life...the key that impacts how the future will unfold. Sometimes, this fundamental connection fails to develop. Children embrace the belief that they cannot depend on others to care for them or meet their needs. Instead of moving toward trust, they shy away from it - convinced that they are alone in their fears and insecurities. A variety of factors contribute to their feelings, including:
  • Interruptions in the early bonding cycle Abuse and/or neglect Multiple placements Painful medical conditions Frequent separations, such as hospitalization Chronic family situations Lack of nurturing and love Orphanage/Institutional care
Promoting Healthy Attachments Through A Full Spectrum of Services At the Attachment and Bonding Center (ABC) of Ohio, we place particular emphasis on fostering the connection between adopted children and their parents. By re-working the early life experiences that interfered with normal developmental processes, we help the children let go of their anger, resentment, and fear. With this release comes the freedom to experience closeness and trust with others - resulting in a greater likelihood that they will attach to their adoptive families. To achieve this end, we provide a variety of services tailored to the specific issues of children with attachment difficulties, as well as programs for those whose lives are intertwined with theirs.
