Abstract:

Attachment Disorder is the psychological diagnosis for children who exhibit problems with attachment during infancy or early childhood. Often resulting in severe emotional and behavioral problems, these children are unable to give and receive love and affection. Often physically and emotionally abusive to caregivers, siblings and peers, these children constantly defy parental rules and authority and create ongoing stress and turmoil in a family. More Than Love is a candid chronicle of three boys adopted with Attachment Disorder and of the difficulties experienced by their adoptive parents. Begun as a daily journal of a quest to bond as a family, author Sherril M. Stone, Ph.D. spares no emotion or detail as she describes the years of heartache and determination required to parent the boys. While outsiders only witnessed charming, sweet, and "good" boys, those close to them knew the extent of their manipulative behaviors. The struggle to reverse the harm caused before the adoption stretched a strong marriage and close family ties to the breaking point. Tragically, the only choice was to relinquish parental rights, a decision made to protect family, friends, and society as a whole.
