Gina Heumann about this book: Gina & Aaron Heumann decided to start a family and the process wasn't as easy as they had hoped.' After four years of infertility treatments, they finally settled on international adoption from Guatemala. They brought home their son Landrey in 2001 and went back three years later to adopt another child. Maddox was neglected by his foster mom before they were able to pick him up, and came to them with anger, anxiety, food-hoarding tendencies, and violence. This book is the true story of one family's daily struggles to find a proper diagnosis and figure out how to help Maddox heal. After more than a decade of challenges, Maddox was diagnosed with Reactive Attachment Disorder, the same condition that's been discussed in reference to Nikolas Cruz, the school shooter from Parkland, Florida. This serious and frightening diagnosis is rare and results from early-life trauma, which can permanently alter how children form relationships. The family remained intact and Maddox is now achieving things never thought possible. Check out this inspirational story of love and devotion!
