about

In moving and candid prose, Rescuing Julia Twice tells Traster’s foreign-adoption story, from dealing with the bleak landscape and inscrutable adoption handlers in Siberia, to her gradual realization that something was "not quite right" with her daughter, Julia. Traster describes how uncertainty turned to despair until she learned that Julia suffered from reactive attachment disorder, a serious condition associated with young children who have been neglected, abused, or orphaned in infancy. Lifting the veil of secrecy that too often surrounds parents struggling with attachment issues, Traster describes how with work, commitment, and acceptance, she and her husband have been able to close the gulf between them and their daughter, then concludes with practical advice, strategies, and resources for parents and caregivers.
