My daughter has a diagnosis of bipolar disorder, anxiety disorder, and ADHD. My son has a diagnosis of ADD. Life can be challenging. Right now, we are in a good place. Both kids are doing well in school, church, and other activities. The tough times are really tough. It is painful to see your child go through weeks of depression and seeing them lose control, by yell things at you she does not really mean. Hope is my favorite word. With hope, I can keep going. I can encourage my kids. I can give hope to others.
