I have raised Codi since he was 3 years old. I adopted him after a long court battle last December. I have always treated him as my son and even encouraged him to excel, etc. Wednesday June 2nd at 3:55pm he tried to take my life by stabbing me in the neck with a 5" serrated camping blade. I went to church sunday because I had immense thanks to give to God for saving my life. During the sermon the Pastor talked about raising teenagers...that we need to tell them that we love them (I did that), that we need to tell them we are proud of them (I did that), and that we need to tell them you are good at......(I did that also). So, what I want to know is why did he do this to me? I understand there are no answers. I do. He is in jail and now I am working on healing while helping my remaining children cope with this tragedy. My 9 year old son saw me covered in blood, saw his brother led off in handcuffs, and saw a police officer take away the knife. What he is feeling I can not imagine. I can't sleep - it is 1am and the thought of going to sleep frightens me. I KNOW he is locked up and I KNOW I am safe, but I am just so uneasy. To top it off when they were doing the CT scan to check for internal bleeding, etc they found a large mass on my thyroid. I know that everything happens for a reason and this happened so that they could find and treat that mass. I have to have an ultrasound and biopsy. I have given it to God to make it either a cyst or some other non life threatening issue. I am strong and I know that God will absolutely not give me more than I can handle. I am glad I have this belief and was already working on improving my relationship with the Lord.
Please pray for me, my children, and my husband as we all try to deal during this difficult time.
God Bless YOU!

Yes, I will certainly be holding you and your family before the LORD. I have no answers about your adopted son and his bizarre actions, but I will be praying for the LORD's intervention and healing in this.
Thanking the LORD that you are safe, but will be praying also about the growth on your thyroid; it may well be that you got that CT scan just in time.
Very sorry your are going through this difficulty, especially when you are working so hard to make a difference in this young man's life.
Yes, will be praying for him.

"Though I walk in the midst of trouble, thou wilt revive me: thou shalt stretch forth thine hand against the wrath of mine enemies, and thy right hand shall save me." - Psalm 138:7
"The LORD is my light and my salvation: whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid." - Psalm 27:1
"Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD" (Psalm 27:14).
"My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into diverse temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing." James 1:2-4
God bless you..just know that the Lord has this under control...surrender it all to HIM and see what happens. HE, and only HE, is the "heart changer!" Nothing is too big for God to handle!:hug:

A lot of a child's personality has been formed by the time is is 3. There also are genetic factors which you would of course have no control over, and which you also might not know about, for example chemical imbalances or whatever. In this crazy culture, though, children raised in the best of homes are being influenced by that other "parent", our mainstream media and so on, not to mention peers. In other words, try to not be so hard on yourself!
I am praying for peace and healing for your whole family, physical as well as emotional and spiritual. Also praying that Codi will get the help he needs from our Savior and be kept from hurting anyone including himself.
It sounds as if you are suffering from post traumatic stress syndrome, totally understandably! I am no expert on that but I'm thinking some calm and soothing music, maybe even some nature sounds, reading things like Psalm 23 and 91 aloud, and maybe some aroma therapy (lavender is very soothing) would maybe help at least a little.
If you turn out to be hypothyroid, just a thought, I hope you will consider reading the post I just left on the Healthy Living for women string about iodine and check out the stopthethyroidmadness.com website which has been a huge blessing to thousands, including me. Praying for all to go wel with your health also.
