Keri captures the reality of a RAD families and their daily struggles perfectly in her book RAD: The essential book for parents. As a RAD mom, and trauma recovery advocate, I highly recommend it to families considering adoption of a child with multiple caregivers in early years, trauma, abuse or neglect. Having a realistic viewpoint of what could become your reality can help equip families mentally, emotionally and physically for what they may encounter. For current RAD families, the book will be an essential tool to share your struggles with your child’s support system. You’ll also know you are not alone in your RAD journey and challenges. Very impressed with this book.
