We have a long road ahead, I know, but what can you tell me about my sonís hope for a normal future? Thanks for your help, Charles

Dear Charles, First of all, thank you for believing your son! With professional help and your love and support, there is every reason to hope for a bright future for your precious son. Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder affects survivors in a variety of different ways. The following website offers insight into not only the causes but also the treatments and recovery strategies for children who suffer from PTSD. Thank you for helping your son find his path to healing and also for the light you have shed on this topic for others! Best wishes for a bright tomorrow! Live in the light, Lala
