    Excellent! The Sound of Music is my all-time favorite movie since I was a child. Now that I have an (adopted) ADHD eight-year-old son I can definitely relate to your article.

    You’re in good company with Maria Von Trapp!!! Climb every mountain…

      Toni, thanks for reading my blog post and for your encouragement. Sometimes, all you need is for one person to believe in you, to “get you” and put wind in your sails. My (adopted) dad did that for me. I know you’ll do the same for your son. See you at the summit!

    Beautiful post. Wonderful movie. Keep up the wonderful posts. Reading this brought me right back into the movie. I could see everything you painted. She ended up in her beautiful garden. Singing and playing and in love and so will all of us with ADHD.

      Thanks, Lindsay. Sure is cheaper than the cost of a movie ticket & a bag of popcorn, eh?! lol
