  • The day our family changed forever
  • It is official
  • We are going to be a foster family!
  • Ethan and CC were brought home, only to find out some devastating effects of their abuse
  • CC threw up all the time
  • I was very excited to have the opportunity to have more siblings, Chase and David on the other hand were much more apprehensive
  • Ethan began to act out often
  • But I want it now!!
  • My parents were called to come pick up Ethan and CC.The original intent was to foster them until they went back to their family, but some other things ended up happening. 
  • Counseling
  • Ethan there are things that need to be done to control your anger and other emotions. 
  • From the time CC was able to feed herself, she began to gorge herself until she threw up. She would eat constantly until she threw up, and it got to the point where we had to take her to the doctor to be evaluated. It was an issue that we had to work through for several months.
  • Most people think this is a common characteristic of a toddler, but whenever the screaming happens often, and the tantrums last a long time, you can see that something is different. 
  • Ethan was placed in counseling to learn how to control his behavior, and his psychologist believes that the root of the issue came from the abuse they experienced.
