Our family theme song,which, I sing often and now some of the older kids sing is "Welcome to the Jungle". Our house is sometimes a little chaotic but I wouldn't have it any other way. We have five children, all adopted through foster care, with an alphabet soup list of diagnosis. It sums up to severe complex trauma and resulting PTSD and fetal alcohol syndrome FAS.
Additionally, because the house isn't busy and hetic enough, we have four dogs, three cats, and new to the family two ferrets. More on why we have so many animals and different kinds of pets on a later blog.
The next post will be about taming the jungle through consistency, structure, and a beautiful and wonderous thing called quiet time.
