Directly from J (she is typing)

This message is from J. J & I were looking at the blog together and at the differences in the pictures then she read all your comments. She decided she wanted to post a message to all you great moms so here she goes:

Hi,

Thank you everyone for all the compliments. I am working really hard at being a normal kid. My Awesome Mom helps me all the time and keeps me safe always and never lets me go in the streets. Miss. Kristy helps me with therapy and Miss Chris helps me with Reiki. Please do not give up on your kids because they can work hard like me and get better. Your kids really want love but they are really afraid to get love but they should get love from you. It's hard being a RAD kid and it's really, really scary. Keep your kids safe and don't let them run in the streets. It's hard learning how to be like a normal kid. Don't let your kids break your stuff. Please do Reiki on your kids. It feels really good. It calms me down.


Please take your kids to a really great therapist like Miss. Kristy. She really helps me. She is the best therapist in the world.

I've got to go to bed now. Happy New Year!!

Jordan

This is from me now:
J was looking at her post and saw all the followers. She thinks y'all are stickers especially Sasha from Accidental Mommy and PeWee and she wants some. ;-) I promised her that she could read the comments in the morning. So people listen up.... my girl is just like her mom and she's expecting lots of comments and "stickers" tomorrow morning.

Just so y'all know the AT has told her that she RAD and that she's working towards being securely attached. The AT thought she was well enough and ready to know this information and honestly she has been. Now I can ask her "what would a normal little kid do" and she'll catch herself and follow up with the appropriate reaction. It's been really cool to watch the progress. The AT has also told her that someday the AT may call her in to teach other RAD kids how to be normal kids. J thought that was the coolest idea she'd ever heard!

Hi J! I have a daughter alot like you, and I adore her to pieces, just like your mom and you! I love reading about you and how you are doing. I love Reiki too! I do Reiki on my dogs and cats and sometimes on my daughter (if she lets me.) I hope you have a great New Year! And enjoy your dollhouse! (I still have mine and I'm 43!!!)

You do have an awesome mom! You too are awesome! Maybe you should be called Awesome J! Your progress absolutely amazes me. You are an inspiration and encouragement to me. To see your courage and persistance transform you into a "normal kid" has given so many people hope for their own kids. Keep up the hard work Awesome J! You are such a beautiful girl!

J- thank you for writing such a wonderful note. It is helpful for me as a mom to understand that you find all this scary and hard, but that you really want to work at it, and work hard. I think it must be tough to have to try so much to be a regular kid. I work with my little girl on that a lot too.
Keep up the great work! Happy New year!

I'm so amazed!

Light, Love and Energy
