Raising arrows, changing hearts with RAD

Haley Chambers Hanahan, South Carolina

We are the chambers family. We have 5 amazing children, 3 adopted from overseas. Two biological boys. We have 3 sons and two daughters. All of our children are unique and wonderful in their own ways. We are no strangers to hard and difficult things, our oldest daughter grace was adopted and had congenital heart defects (5 to be exact). She suffered brain damage at a young age. She was loved, cherished and taught me so much about the world. We knew we wanted to adopt again and two years later brought home Eli and Hannah. Life was crazy! But it was beautiful. We struggled with some attachment issues and we changed how we parented everyone (multiple times I believe lol) in 2018 graces time on this earth was finished and she went to be with our savior. We knew it was coming but nothing could prepare hearts that just didn't understand. Soon after the heartbreak became another beast and we began seeing the light of severe attachment disorder come through. At the same time other mysterious health issues crept in causing more stress and trauma to a hard situation and this snowballed into severe attachment disorders, diagnosis of RAD, possible ODD, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, and the list goes on. We have exhausted all efforts we know to help our son and a residential treatment is the next step. This matching grant will go a long way to helping us get him help and healing!!!
