Thanks. Elijah has some..issues. He's been seeing a therapist that wants to diagnose him with ADHD & ODD & I'm still not quite sure how I feel about that. But since getting Kovu & Sarabi he has changed so much. They are better therapy for him than any therapist has been thus far.

It's always tough to hear those diagnoses, but as long as you're using a skilled and reputable therapist that you trust it's best to learn these things while the child is still young and you have plenty of time to work with him. FYI, most diagnoses of ADHD come with an average of four additional comorbidities, so if he has only one, count yourself - and him - fortunate!

Great pics. So nice to see Kovu & Sarabi have gotten to be friends. Ashley is there a chance that Elijah's behavior is related to his dad's absences? Or that his potential ADHD/ODD is affected by that?

I personally think his behavior is due to Glenn's absences. But the therapist says its probably a mix of both.
