Sumary of Dear Fiona: Our grown-up adopted daughter doesn’t want to see us any more:
- Parenting a child is hard enough, but parenting one who has been so traumatised takes enormous patience and commitment.
- “Hopefully, you can accept that whilst the current situation isn’t at all satisfactory, there is nothing more you could have done to improve things.
- It might mean very small steps for now, but if you keep doing them regularly, your daughter may begin to trust and respond positively to them.
- It might be something as simple as a regular text message or it might be a weekly food parcel – whatever it is, let it be something you are comfortable with and feel able to do regularly.
