Reactive Attachment Disorder.

Here's a short explanation:

RAD arises from a failure to form normal attachments to primary caregivers in early childhood. Such a failure could result from severe early experiences of neglect, abuse, abrupt separation from caregivers between the ages of six months and three years, frequent change of caregivers, or a lack of caregiver responsiveness to a child's communicative efforts.

It afflicts a couple families we know who have adopted children--including this one

We know them quite well--Mom and Dad are Tommy's godparents.

If you can help in any way, it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks to Mark for spotlighting this.
