Health-seeking behavior for malaria among child and adult headed households in Rakai district, Uganda. (1/115)

BACKGROUND: The number of orphans in Rakai district, Uganda is estimated to be 34,902 (OCBO, 2000) which translates into 28% of children under the age of 18 years. Young people who have been orphaned and as a result became heads of households must look after themselves and their siblings. These children are likely to be faced with several health problems and have to take crucial life decisions without parental/adult guidance. OBJECTIVES: This study was conducted in order to understand how child-headed households, Rakai district in Uganda recognize malaria, their health-seeking behavior when malaria is suspected and reasons for the type of behavior compared to the adult-headed households. METHODS: A comparative cross-sectional study was conducted in 300 households in Rakai district, Uganda, in which 8/23 (35%) of sub-counties and 150 child-headed households were included. The closest neighborhood adult-headed household to each child-headed household was selected for comparison. Individual interview was carried out with the respondents using semi-structure questionnaire. Key informant interview and focus group discussions were also conducted. RESULTS: The main findings were that the respondents in child-headed households had less knowledge on signs and symptoms of simple and severe malaria compared to adult heads of households. Respondents in child-headed households were less likely to seek health care from health facilities (OR=0.59, CI=0.36-0.97, p-value=0.028). There was no significant difference in the time lag before taking first action in the two types of households (OR=0.72, CI=0.42-1.22, p-value=0.194). The respondents in child-headed households were six times (OR=5.70,CI=2.75-11.91, p-value<0.001) more likely to use local herb for treatment of malaria than the adult heads households. Major reasons stated by the respondents for choosing where health care is sought included distance to source of health care, cheap or free treatment, availability of drugs, and quick services to patients. CONCLUSION: The respondents in child-headed households had less knowledge on signs and symptoms of simple and severe malaria and receive too little or late health care from health professionals compared to the adult heads of households probably due to lack of knowledge and money. Information Communication and Education programs should be designed and target the child-headed households and supply home packs.  (+info)

Adoption is presented as a difficult (stressful) situation for the adopted child, but also for the childless married couple, who has decided to take in the orphaned child. Adoption as a difficult situation is connected with the experience of loss. The childless spouses experience the loss of their biological parenthood, the loss of their biological child, who died during the prenatal period or just after being born, but also the loss of the status of a "normal" family created in accordance with the normative model of a family. The adopted child, on the other hand, experiences the loss of biological parents and biological siblings, the loss of genealogical continuity and of "the bonds of blood". The child must be confronted with the fact that "one, to be adopted, must be first abandoned". The problem with the studies on adoption lies in their theoretical character. Because of that, the psychological understanding of adoption reality is limited.  (+info)

Attachment, cognitive, and motor development in adopted children: short-term outcomes after international adoption. (3/115)

OBJECTIVE: To examine infant attachment and developmental functioning shortly after international adoption. METHODS: At 14 months, infant-mother attachment and mental (MDI) and psychomotor (PDI) development were assessed in 70 internationally adopted children. Mean age at arrival was 5.5 months, mean stay in the adoptive family 8.7 months. RESULTS: Adopted children's MDI and PDI did not deviate from normative scores. Also, their secure-insecure attachment distribution was comparable with that of normative groups. However, more adoptees were disorganized attached (36 vs. 15% in normative groups). Temporary residence in a foster home in the country of origin before adoption was related to higher MDI and PDI, whereas disorganized attachment in the adoptive family was related to lower MDI and PDI scores. CONCLUSIONS: The majority of internationally adopted children form secure attachment relationships and function at normative developmental levels shortly after adoption. Residence in a foster family before adoption may partly prevent developmental delays.  (+info)

Nutritional status, psychological well-being and the quality of life of AIDS orphans in rural Henan Province, China. (4/115)

OBJECTIVE: To assess the influence of orphanhood due to AIDS on children's nutritional status, psychological well-being and life quality, and to explore appropriate intervention strategies in China. METHODS: In 2005, 186 children aged 8-15 years (93 AIDS orphans and 93 non-orphans) from a rural area of Henan Province were surveyed in a cross-sectional and matched pairs study on nutritional status, psychological health and life quality. RESULTS: We found no compelling evidence for poorer nutritional status in orphans. The nutritional status of both orphans and non-orphans was extremely poor according to the prevalence of stunting, underweight, wasting and anaemia. Depression, low self-esteem and lower quality of life were more frequent in orphans. These differences mainly existed in boys' groups. No significant differences were found between paternal, maternal and double orphans, or orphans in orphanages or extended families. Regression analysis revealed that orphanhood leads to low self-esteem and more depression which contributes to lower quality of life and mediates the association between orphanhood and quality of life. CONCLUSION: The high prevalence of poor nutritional status indicates that basic material needs of children, including AIDS orphans, are not met in rural China. Psychological problems were prominent among orphans and had become the most important contributor of lower life quality. Boys were at least as vulnerable as girls. The living conditions of all children in rural China must be improved; school-based care and support are crucial and would be a cost-effective way to improve the overall life quality of AIDS orphans.  (+info)

The effects of high HIV prevalence on orphanhood and living arrangements of children in Malawi, Tanzania, and South Africa. (5/115)

Using longitudinal data from three demographic surveillance systems (DSS) and a retrospective cohort study, we estimate levels and trends in the prevalence and incidence of orphanhood in South Africa, Tanzania, and Malawi in the period 1988-2004. The prevalence of maternal, paternal, and double orphans rose in all three populations. In South Africa - where the HIV epidemic started later, has been very severe, and has not yet stabilized - the incidence of orphanhood among children is double that of the other populations. The living arrangements of children vary considerably between the populations, particularly in relation to fathers. Patterns of marriage, migration, and adult mortality influence the living and care arrangements of orphans and non-orphans. DSS data provide new insights into the impact of adult mortality on children, challenging several widely held assumptions. For example, we find no evidence that the prevalence of child-headed households is significant or has increased in the three study areas.  (+info)

HIV-associated orphanhood and children's psychosocial distress: theoretical framework tested with data from Zimbabwe. (6/115)

OBJECTIVES: We measured the psychosocial effect of orphanhood in a sub-Saharan African population and evaluated a new framework for understanding the causes and consequences of psychosocial distress among orphans and other vulnerable children. METHODS: The framework was evaluated using data from 5321 children aged 12 to 17 years who were interviewed in a 2004 national survey in Zimbabwe. We constructed a measure of psychosocial distress using principle components analysis. We used regression analyses to obtain standardized parameter estimates of psychosocial distress and odds ratios of early sexual activity. RESULTS: Orphans had more psychosocial distress than did nonorphans. For both genders, paternal, maternal, and double orphans exhibited more-severe distress than did nonorphaned, nonvulnerable children. Orphanhood remained associated with psychosocial distress after we controlled for differences in more-proximate determinants. Maternal and paternal orphans were significantly more likely than were nonorphaned, nonvulnerable children to have engaged in sexual activity. These differences were reduced after we controlled for psychosocial distress. CONCLUSIONS: Orphaned adolescents in Zimbabwe suffer greater psychosocial distress than do nonorphaned, nonvulnerable children, which may lead to increased likelihood of early onset of sexual intercourse and HIV infection. The effect of strategies to provide psychosocial support should be evaluated scientifically.  (+info)

Care arrangements, grief and psychological problems among children orphaned by AIDS in China. (7/115)

The China Ministry of Health has estimated that there are at least 100,000 AIDS orphans in China. The UNICEF China Office estimates that between 150,000 and 250,000 additional children will be orphaned by AIDS over the next five years. However, limited data are available regarding the sociodemographic characteristics, care arrangements, barriers to appropriate grief resolution and psychological problems among AIDS orphans in China. In this article, we review secondary data and reports from scientific literature, government, non-governmental organisations and public media regarding children orphaned by AIDS in China to address their living situation, bereavement process and psychological problems. Our review suggests that AIDS orphans in China are living in a stressful environment, with many orphans struggling with psychological problems and unmet basic needs such as food, shelter, education and medical care. Based on our review, we suggest that future studies should address the psychosocial needs of AIDS orphans in China and develop health promotion programmes to mitigate the negative impact of parental death on the physical and psychosocial well-being of these orphans.  (+info)

A novel economic intervention to reduce HIV risks among school-going AIDS orphans in rural Uganda. (8/115)

This study tested an economic intervention to reduce HIV risks among AIDS-orphaned adolescents. Adolescents (n = 96) were randomly assigned to receive the intervention or usual care for orphans in Uganda. Data obtained at baseline and 12-month follow-up revealed significant differences between the treatment and control groups in HIV prevention attitudes and educational planning.  (+info)

This paper addresses two frequent overgeneralisations in the orphanhood literature in Africa: about the vulnerability of children and about orphans. It specifically examines school attendance, given the common presumption that orphans are less likely to attend school than non-orphans. Using survey data from two regions in Tanzania, analysis by primary school attendance categories (regular attenders, irregular attenders, dropouts, never attenders) shows that orphans should not be compared only with non-orphans since there are other vulnerable groups of children, all with different levels of social and spatial disadvantage. Both orphans and a second large and potentially vulnerable group of children, children who have not lost a parent, but who live with only one or neither of their parents, are less likely than other children to attend school in urban and roadside settlements, but there is no clear relationship for rural areas between vulnerable groups and attendance and dropout. ...
The three essays in this dissertation examine issues related to family structure and marriage in Sub-Saharan Africa. The first two essays explore how family structures influence childrens outcomes. The third essay focuses on the data quality of marriage histories collected in a longitudinal survey. The first essay examines whether the timing and type of orphanhood is associated with early sexual debut and early marriage among 12-19-year-old adolescents in Burkina Faso, Ghana, Malawi, and Uganda. I also test whether education mediates orphans risk of early sexual initiation and early marriage. Discrete-time event history models suggest that female double orphans, regardless of timing of orphanhood, have greater odds of early sexual debut than do nonorphans. Education explains little of their increased risk. In contrast, male orphans of any type reveal no increased vulnerability to early sexual debut. Uganda is the only country where female orphans, specifically double orphans and those who are paternal
Orphaned children have been found to be at greater risk of poor health and malnutrition compared to non-orphans in sub-Saharan African countries. However, levels of disadvantage vary by location and little is known about the causal pathways that lead from orphanhood to poorer health and malnutrition. Aggregate data from recent Demographic and Health Surveys in 22 countries were used to compare overall levels of ill-health and malnutrition by orphan status. Data from the Manicaland Child Cohort Study in Zimbabwe - a closed cohort study with detailed longitudinal information on orphans experience - were used to describe how patterns of ill-health and malnutrition alter over the childs life-course and to test causal pathways between orphanhood and ill-health and malnutrition, hypothesized in a previously published theoretical frame-work ...
Background: Identifying children at the highest risk of negative health effects is a prerequisite to effective public health policies in Southern Africa. A central ongoing debate is whether poverty, orphanhood or parental AIDS most reliably indicates child health risks. Attempts to address this key question have been constrained by a lack of data allowing distinction of AIDS-specific parental death or morbidity from other causes of orphanhood and chronic illness. Objectives: To examine whether household poverty, orphanhood and parental illness (by AIDS or other causes) independently or interactively predict child health, developmental and HIV-infection risks. Methods: We interviewed 6 002 children aged 10 - 17 years in 2009 - 2011, using stratified random sampling in six urban and rural sites across three South African provinces. Outcomes were child mental health risks, educational risks and HIV-infection risks. Regression models that controlled for socio-demographic co-factors tested potential ...
This study examines the impact of school support as a structural intervention, tested among adolescent orphans in Siaya District, Nyanza Province, Kenya.. Aims for the proposed study are: 1) To experimentally test whether providing comprehensive school support to Kenyan orphaned boys and girls will reduce school dropout, reduce sexual risk behaviors, and prevent HIV/HSV-2 infection; 2) To conduct a process evaluation of the implementation of the program; and 3) To conduct comparative cost effectiveness analyses, specifying the interventions cost and return on investment as evidenced by cost per unit improvement in the primary outcomes of school enrollment, delay of sexual debut and prevention of risk behaviors and HIV/HSV-2 infection, as well as by gains in health-related quality of life. ...

We worked at Reach-Out Orphans and Vulnerable Children for two weeks as part of our global health externship. So far we have assisted in two free health clinics to the Reach-Out community and its surrounding areas, one in West Kochieng and the other in East Kochieng. Both of the clinics were very successful and had an exceptional turnout of 350 and 400 respectively. We were very thankful to have nursing students from Moi University assist us for both of the health clinics. Collectively we were able to recognize and treat a variety of illnesses such as malaria, respiratory tract infections and eye infections. We also provided wound care and voluntary HIV testing accompanied by counseling.. Pam McQuide and Hezekiah were a big influence in another major project we did of distributing sanitary pads to the female students. We were amazed to learn how common it is throughout Africa for girls to miss up to a month of school each year due to the lack of sanitary pads. Through the generosity of family ...

This implies that the teacher may not be happy to teach Life Orientation, but that they have no choice but to try and cope with the incumbent stressors - you have no option but to swallow the pain and go ahead with the tuition. Being overburdened with OVC issues, the LO teachers were forced to work longer hours in order to attend to their lesson preparation and assessment duties. This kind of problem is something that can only really be dealt with at school level under the leadership of the principal (Wood & Webb, 2008).. Conclusions and recommendations. The findings of this study offer little evidence of the training programme designers having consulted with teachers on the lived reality of teaching in a school where HIV and AIDS have increased the vulnerability of the majority of children. The current training workshops, while well-intentioned, position the teacher as a passive recipient of knowledge, rather than an active contributor to the construction of strategies based on expert ...

In Sub-Saharan Africa, 30 percent of the population is malnourished, 76 percent of the population living in rural areas lacks access to improved sanitation, while 53 percent has no access to improved drinking water sources. Children suffer a large proportion of this resulting disease burden which results in preventable death and nutritional, cognitive and physical deficits.

Reports that the HSE is unable to respond adequately to hundreds of cases of vulnerable children because of staff shortages and under-resourcing is a further indication that our health services, and our child protection services in particular, are run on the basis of profit and loss accounts and balance sheets, rather than on the basis of the needs of vulnerable children.. The book-keeping culture that prevails in the HSE has led to a situation where the protection afforded to children is largely confined to emergency action. Local child protection teams simply dont have the resources they require to make early interventions, in order to prevent a problem in a family escalating into a crisis.. Social work teams are hugely under-resourced, and thanks to the HSE staff recruitment embargo, just about every one of them is operating well below full staff complement.. When you consider the massive backlogs in many areas of the country, the lack of an out-of-hours service, and the lack of specialist ...

Save the Children provides care and support for orphans and other vulnerable children (OVC) in communities in many countries across Africa, including Ethiopia, Malawi, Mozambique, Uganda and Tanzania. Save the Children has also been active in Haiti and is building stronger OVC components into its Asia programming as well. Save the Childrens approach strengthens child safety and protection, nutrition, health, education and other critical support services. Our programs are tailored to meet the age-specific needs of the child affected by AIDS, and use whole child programming and family-centered approaches to ensure their needs are met and appropriate linkages to services and care are made. For example, Save the Children supported over half a million children though the Positive Change: Children, Communities and Care (PC3) program in Ethiopia, building upon on a foundation of community mobilization that has been highly successful in ensuring community engagement in care and support for OVC.

BACKGROUND: Trained community workers (CWs) successfully deliver health and social services, especially due to greater community acceptance. Orphans and vulnerable children (OVC) and their caregivers (CG) often need support from several sectors. We identified CW, program and referral characteristics that were associated with success of referrals provided to OVC and their CG in Tanzania in a cross-sectoral bi-directional referral system. METHODS: Data for this secondary analysis come from the first two years (2017-2018) of the USAID funded Kizazi Kipya project. Referral success was defined as feedback and service received within 90 days post-referral provision. We analyzed factors that are associated with the referral success of HIV related, education, nutrition, parenting, household economic strengthening, and child protection services among OVC and CG, using generalized estimating equations. RESULTS: During the study period, 19,502 CWs in 68 councils provided 146,996 referrals to 132,640 ...

The face is involved in 40-50% of patients with burns admitted to the Dutch Burn Centres. Scarring of the face as a consequence of burns will often have a detrimental effect on function and aesthetics, and may cause negative effects on psychosocial wellbeing. What the best treatment is for facial burns, minimising scarring, is unclear. Besides that, there is little empirical evidence regarding the impact of facial scarring on psychosocial wellbeing.. In clinical practice good results are felt to be achieved by treatment of facial burns with flammacerium. To substantiate the perceived advantages of flammacerium, its efficacy is compared to flammazine, a current alternative of care. The efficacy of treatment will be assessed in a prospective randomised multicentre clinical trial. Efficacy will be analysed in terms of number of patients requiring surgery and functional and aesthetic outcome.. Apart from medical outcome, this study offers the opportunity to study psychosocial problems associated ...

This content is abstracted from the HIV/AIDS and Education topic page.. The positive impact of education reforms are greatly reduced by the presence of HIV/AIDS. This epidemic is damaging education systems by killing teachers, increasing rates of teacher absenteeism, and creating orphans and vulnerable children who are more likely to drop out of school or not attend school at all.. At the request of countries affected by HIV/AIDS, the UNAIDS Inter Agency Task Team (IATT) for Education was established as a mechanism for coordinating action on AIDS and education among the UNAIDS co-sponsors, bilateral donors and Civil Society. In 2002, the IATT established a Working Group, coordinated by the World Bank, with the specific operational aim of helping countries to Accelerate the Education Sector Response to HIV/AIDS in Africa.

Well, Id argue that banning abortion without first or concurrently taking legal steps to reduce the reasons women cite for having abortion would be extremely bad public policy and result in an increased number of children born into poverty whose parents cannot afford to support them; children born with congenital disease whose parents cannot afford to care for them; women carrying pregnancies to term without prenatal care; and women seeking illegal and medically unsupervised abortions. All of these situations could result in death and a government that allows such situations to occur cannot fairly be called pro-life. Public policy measures must be taken to reduce the possibility that any of these situations would occur, or the banning of abortion, while saving millions of lives, will nonetheless not protect the lives of many vulnerable children and women. So adopting public policies to attack the factors that cause women to seek abortion, in order to set the stage for the elimination of ...

Chadwicks Orphanage, Bolton James Barlow, the industrialist and philanthropist who funded the first National Childrens Home in Edgworth, was also a trustee of Chadwicks Orphanage, also known as The Chadwick Orphanage..

The White Hope Orphanage We specialize in caring for unique and special children. The children in the orphanage include elves, drow, lycanthropes, selkies, sprites, dragons, and more. Were even equipped to deal with young dragons in the event the need should arise. Our Mission: To provide the best possible care to the many orphans found in Rhydin. We specialize in providing for the needs of unique, special, and magical children. Who We Help: Given the number of wars, disasters, murders, and atrocities that happen daily in Rhydin, it is no surprise many orphans are to be found there. We primarily take in the children that most are unlikely to even be able to deal with. Most cities have orphanages to care for normal children and were more than happy to assist them should they be in need. We maintain contacts with as many of these orphanages as possible and they send us the children they are not equipped to deal with. Where Were Located: We have branches in the cities of Moonblade and Taglios. ...
A large number of service agencies work to support optimal child development, but many have specific age requirements (e.g., early intervention, preschool, or school age), or provide specific types of services (e.g., developmental, health, social welfare, or educational). Too often, vulnerable children are identified but do not meet strict criteria for services of the agencies contacted, leaving them without needed services. An example of a program that has reduced service gaps by integrating available services for children is Help Me Grow.¶ Help Me Grow serves as a centralized point of entry for both state- and community-based services where families of vulnerable children are matched to service agencies that offer the support they need (14). Through a single information line, vulnerable children who are likely to meet eligibility criteria are linked to one or more publicly funded early intervention services, preschool special education services, and interventions for children with special ...

Peace Child Orphanage is based at the foot of the Himalayas in the bustling town of Pokhara. It is home to a wonderful group of children who are lucky enough to enjoy the shelter, support and education offered by Binod and his family. When the children are not at school, helping around the house or playing games in the back garden, they sometimes enjoy trips out to the playground and other recreational activities. The orphanage was set up in 2003 by Binod whose vision was to provide shelter, food and education to as many children as possible who would otherwise have had no such opportunities in life. With the continued help and encouragement of volunteers and sponsors from around the world, this vision is realised daily in the growing sea of smiling faces that welcome you at their door. ...
Introduction. The number of children orphaned by (Human Immunosuppressive Virus) HIV/AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) and those made vulnerable by other factors has risen worldwide, creating peculiar circumstances that may affect childrens ability to benefit from regular education (Chitiyo, Changara & Chitiyo, 2008). Globally, almost 10% of the people infected with HIV/AIDS are children and youth under 18 years, while 17.8 million children have been orphaned by AIDS (Joint United Nations Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS), 2013). Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, and the Caribbean have experienced the effects of HIV/AIDS, which have changed human lives, along with the shape of societies (Family Health International (FHI) & United States Agency for International Development (USAID), 2001). The overwhelming number of OVC live with either one parent, elderly grandparents who also need care and support, or with poor relatives who struggle to meet their own needs (FHI & USAID, 2001). Children ...
Life has been great and it is always a joy for me to teach the young ones; that was what my 76 years young father in law Cornelis said to me when we were having our breakfast at the orphanage. More he said that he feels good to be able to mingle with the little ones. From a simple thing we can create such a happy environment for us to teach and for the children to be taught. It was great also almost every evening to see my daughters teaching the bigger orphans about English too. It has been a privilege for me and my family for having my father in law coming and to stay with us at the orphanage. With his presence I am sure that our orphans will be much better off on their studies. To teach is not just a mater of having a diploma/certificate about it but we have to know how to implement the teaching theories and to know the students quality ...
Responding, Mary Favour, a staff of the orphanage who represented the manager, Mrs. Queen Umike, thanked AIHSOSA99 members for choosing to visit the orphanage home out of numerous others in Lagos. We have more than 27 children here but they cant come down because of COVID-19. Every child that is here is known to the government. We are registered under the government. So every child here came through the government, and for those that didnt come through the government, we always go back to notify the government about them for record purposes. This enables the government to carry out proper investigation about the children, so as to be able to trace their parents and reconcile them or find foster parents for them, she said ...

As I have written on the previous entry that we are having a new member earlier this month. His name is Yehuda. He is almost 15 months now.He was only 6 KG when Peggy brought him from Biak Island ( West Papua) when she visited her parents .It was so sad when Peggy brought him to the hospital and found out that the wasnt any blood came oou from him when the doctor wanted to check his condition. Only after 3 days on a constant drips the doctor was finally able to get some blood sample from Yehuda. After the doctor told us that he is progressing well , Peggy brought him to our home in Jakarta for a day then flew off to Timor on the next day. Yehuda is ok now and staying with us at the orphanage. The only sad thing that we can not change is his blindness ( the doctor told us that they can not do anything with his eyes ). peggy and I have committed to learn about how to look after a blind child but any of you who are having the expertise about it , please share it with us. Anyway the orphanage is ...

I only had one thing that I really wanted to do in Nairobi this time around, and that was a visit to the David Sheldrick elephant orphanage. Id planned to go around my birthday, but instead, extended the anticipation by waiting for a friend to arrive. Our antipodean crew of 4 traipsed out to Nairobi National Park and the surprising lack of traffic on a Sunday morning got us to the orphanage about 40 minutes early. There were already quite a lot of people there, but we hung out at the entrance and when it was time to go in we were very close to the front. Friends had advised us where to stand (in front of milk bottles or a water barrel) so we had a prime position ...

September 30, 2006 -- Italian authorities have returned to Belarus a 10-year-old orphan whose case has divided Italy and strained relations between the two countries.
Hm, this really deserves a full essay in response, but Ill do my best to cover it without being too wordy.. Basically, society doesnt place much of a value on orphaned children. They do not have any family connections to pull the strings for them, and they very, very rarely can make it far at all in their educational career, which is another valued factor. Once they are grown, they can certainly move into one of the lower-tier jobs, factory work specifically, without much of an issue. But as their legal status is often very tricky, depending on their hukou, how they came to the orphanage, the city they want to work in, etc., if a factory manager knows they are an orphan they are severe risk of being exploited. Beyond this, there is no upward mobility for them, as their lack of education places them in one position for essentially their entire lives. While this isnt all that different from migrant workers, it is exacerbated by the fact that people look down on orphans (to be fair, as many ...

Kolkata (AsiaNews) The Christ Mission Ashram, a church in south Calcutta, was torn down yesterday to make way for a new road. In addition to the Protestant church, the complex included an orphanage that was home to 30 children and 20 women.. The action followed a court order authorising the demolition to complete a project undertaken a decade ago that when completed will cut by half the time it takes to go from the citys airport to its southern outskirts.. Hundreds of members of the Protestant congregation tried to stop the demolition clashing with employees from the Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority (KMDA). Ten people, including some children, were hurt.. KMDA employees entered the mission at around 6 am through a rear gate and started tearing down the buildings. Woken by the noise, locals poured out of their homes and within minutes constituted a 100-strong group ready to take on the demolition brigade. The protest stopped the work for some minutes until police was able push away ...

Love all your posts! Wanted to comment on this one because it hits home. Our oldest adopted daughter has MANY of these behaviors, but she was never in an orphanage. Her first six months was spent with an unpredictable mentally unstable mother. Our recent move made us realize she was not just strong-willed, but fearful and not as attached as she should be! Our youngest, on the other hand, was in an institution for her first 20 months. She has NONE of these behaviors because she was in an awesome institution that cared for her, protected her, and helped her build an attachment. Anyway, it all comes down to relationships. I would like to hear about your newest kiddos issues, but it would also be helpful to hear if any of your other children still have some of these behaviors after being home for awhile. ...
