    Hi Natasha,

    I think this particular post will help many married couples of adopted children for sure! I can only imagine just how hard it is on a marriage with an adopted child, let alone with one who has trauma. I was adopted at 10 months old, but I still had things from my past that had been traumatic for me, which I carried into my new life in America. My folks have one of the strongest marriages I know of, but I know they had their hard days due to the stress of having me. My parents are celebrating their 50th anniversary next week, so marriage with adopted kids can flourish, but not without serious cultivating on both sides. I also feel that telling your spouse that you are on their side and vise versa is equally important. I had friends years back who had a natural child, but it was constantly the Mother telling the Dad that so and so didn’t do this or that on purpose, or that the Mom told so and so that he could do this or that. The Mom NEVER stood behind the Dad if the Dad was trying to discipline the child. This particular child would always go to the Mom to get his own way. The Mom would always rush into comfort the child, never allowing the Dad to do the hugging and patching up after the child being disciplined. I’m thankful that you and your husband always tell each other that you are on each other’s sides.

    Happy Saturday, and have a nice weekend!

    God Bless!
    Bethany
