Thank you both for many wonderful and helpful insights
Now that routine is back on he is a different child altogether. I guess we now know what to anticipate next break from school.
He has several appointments going on right now,. he was just recently diagnosed despite my 'knowing' for a few years now. He will be having his first psychologist appointment next Tuesday.
I feel like this has been an up hill battle,. I am weary and no longer see how I can serve him anymore. Loving him feels impossible for me right now and I am unsure how to change that,. I ask for grace on a daily basis and still I am exhausted and heart broken. I understand my contract with him,.I understand I am to learn from him and then help other children...but I feel at a total loss right now. I practice reiki everyday and also have other practioner's helping me but still the course has run me ragged.
We have been fighting to end his mothers visitation ever since the start when he was taken from her by child services,. we still are but we are beginning to wonder what we are fighting for anymore,. he wants to be with her.
Thank you for all the responses,.. very much appreciate. I will do my best to stay the course and get him through his appointments best I can, sadly I no longer feel that mother-child bond with him anymore.
Wow,..you both came really close to how he is. My thoughts are that we have been fighting this battle to set him on the straight and narrow for 3 years now and we are exhausted. He seems to be getting worse, we feel he doesn't want to be here at all anymore and his mom is a hazard. We are unsure at this point if we should stay the course,. send him to a foster home for a while, or hand him over to his mother full time, or perhaps place him in an institution. We are not considering any of these lightly but can no longer live our lives like this.

My question is what to do in regards to my step son,. he is beyond a difficult child and we are feeling at a total loss. Any and all feedback are appreciated! I will be happy to return the favor.
Thank you so much!! It is so wonderful to have my self reading confirmed by others, sometimes when I read I feel like my cards tell me what I want to hear but when it comes to this I want to be sure I am reading everything correctly, so thank you for your time, patience and generosity Any time I can help you in return please do not hesitate.
Hello, I am new here...seeking some clarity. I am looking for help to interpret this spread so that I do not miss anything,. it is something that is very important to my family.
A bit of background info,... I am a step mom to a now five year old boy, whom I have cared for since Spring of '09. He went through a lot of bad things with his bio mom, long story short we won custody she kept supervised visitation. We are being dragged into court because we are moving away for better opportunity and I asked what I could expect for my little boy. (Kiddo was not only abused but has adhd severely and autism to which I have been fighting for testing and resources).
This card which I believe symbolizes my kiddo was stuck in the card wrappings before I even began to shuffle. Page of Swords.
