I agree with everything you have said. This boy was rejected by his month at 2 mo. when she left my son for another woman. We have found that she is bipolar and used drugs before Chris was born. My son later married and the stepmother has given nothing to Chris and has had two more children. We never saw any love or concern for him. He is so damaged at this point that she told my son if they didn't do something with Chris she would leave him. They were prepared to sign him over to the state of Louisiana to be put in foster care when we stepped in an took him. He has been with us since January 1, 2012, but has been a handful. We love this kid with all our heart. He cuses and hits us and throws tantrums. We are looking for help locally and we will get him help from a mental health specalist soon. He really is damaged but we do not
know if reversible.
