Sharon Fuller began her journey with developmental trauma disorder (DTD), and reactive attachment disorder (RAD) fifteen years ago when she and her husband first adopted. At the time, they had six biological children and no knowledge of early childhood trauma or how the adoption experience would literally change the course of their lives. As a result of the early childhood trauma and institutional living that their adopted children endured, adoption took their family into the world of attachment challenges, PTSD, fetal alcohol spectrum disorder (FASD) and a variety of other disorders. These diagnoses and related behaviors drove Sharon into research and education which led to her becoming an expert in how to best help children from difficult places. As she began to understand more about how trauma affects the brain and behaviors and how to help her children with these challenges, a passion grew in her to help other families struggling with these same issues.
