Emily was fifteen when she left Russia and joined three of her biological siblings in our family. She was the stereotypical horror story of a traumatized child with Reactive Attachment Disorder and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. She terrorized our family. She manipulated psychologists who had no idea how a traumatized child works. As parents, we were wondering if we were crazy. That was, until we read Adopting the Hurt Child. The book made no claim to quick fixes or promises of a cure. It simply gave very practical tools to use with the idea that they were the best practices to use, offering the best hope for the most advancement possible. It took years. Adopting the Hurt Child was a mainstay in the game plan that we as parents and those who worked with Emily used in an effort to help her to have the life we always wanted for her. Emily is twenty-two, now and has finally been able to move beyond life in an institution thanks to wonderful staff and therapists, but also to them having the tools provided by Adopting the Hurt Child. If you have a traumatized child, this is the book you need. Be patient. There is no quick fix. Handing a child a stuffed unicorn and painting a rainbow on her bedroom wall does not remove the scars that are the result of horrific and unbelievably painful wounds. Thank you Dr. Keck for saving our family and for giving us back our daughter.

This book was filled with descriptions of behaviors that are accurate to real life and explanations of reasons behind those behaviors that gave new perspective. I am grateful for the thorough research and how the author was careful to show “two sides to every story”, from the adoption triad: birth family, adoptive parents, and adoptee. I am looking forward to Parenting the Hurt Child next to dive more into the “how to”.

Explained what to look for, what it is, and how to deal with the situations you very well count encounter when adopting children especially internationally or domestically from foster care. We are adopting a 7 year old from foster care, and it helped us so much to know what to ask her current worker and care givers before deciding yes or no to the adoption. Then it went on to help us to deal with her behaviors from PTSD, RAD, and ODD.

This book was life-changing for our family. Understanding the our adopted son's temper tantrums helped us use the right techniques to almost eliminate them!

I'm getting my foster care license right now and have been loaning this book out to friends and family so they will have a better understanding of what I'm going through and why the children respond differently than they expect to things. I found this writing style to be extremely candid and filled with hope.

My wife and I adopted a 5 and 7 yr old from Russia in Sept 2004. They have been diagnosed as mildly RAD, but RAD nonetheless. RAD is Reactive Attachment Disorder for those of you just beginning a path to adoption of older children. I can say from first-hand experience of the past six months that what Keck has written is true, verified and helpful in many ways. I would highly recommend this as a read while you are CONSIDERING adopting older children, domestic or otherwise. It is best to be prepared and accepting of the conditions that you will likely face before you suddenly realize what's going on with your child(ren). Between Keck and Nancy Thomas (When Love is Not Enough), your preparation for dealing with the behaviors that will sooner or later emerge will be rewarded in your ability to maintain some sanity in your home.

This book was excellent. It gives an honest, no-nonsense look at the reality of adopting a child with a history of abuse or neglect. It's so important that people adopting older/abused children know what they're getting into--and boy does this cover it! The authors truly understand the issues discussed, and there are plenty of real-life anecdotes from their clients. This will prepare many people for the difficult but worthwhile journey of adoption. Many of the issues touched upon involve attachment, but cultural issues and clashes will arise as well. It does a good job of explaining how raising a child like this will be different, and goes over some different ways to approach them with love, safety, and positive discipline. Every adoption agency should have a dozen copies to lend out to prospective parents.
This book changed the way I was parenting my daughter, who I adopted as a baby. Using this and several other books, She became much more secure in her attachment.
