I wanted to update you on Operation Hope. For those unfamiliar with Operation Hope, here’s the cliff notes version.
We are in the process of trying to place our oldest son, Gavin, into residential care.
There are a million reasons why this has to happen. The most important reasons are that it’s Gavin’s only hope and ours as well.
The Lost and Tired family is coming apart at the seams. Gavin’s behaviors play a huge role in that. Gavin has been diagnosed with reactive attachment disorder (RAD) and this is quite serious.
Basically, Gavin cannot form emotional bonds with people and has no conscience.
Long story short.. It’s not safe for him to be in our house. He’s way, way to volatile and is becoming more and more aggressive, both physically and sexually.
Operation Hope is the process of finding him the help that he desperately needs and well as providing relief to the rest of the family.
Nothing has changed much since my last update. He has his good days and bad days. Today, was a really bad day.
We will begin building our wraparound team very soon and filling out additional paperwork for funding residential treatment.
That’s about it for now. I can’t keep my eyes open so goodnight all. .
