Our 5 year old daughter is biracial, adopted, an only child, recently moved closer to extended family and has been recently diagnosed with ADHD. She is already so very different from other kids in our extended family but some the the behaviors that are associated with her ADHD add to these differences. I've noticed that our daughter is excluded in social situations and I'm sure some of this stems from behaviors that are associated with her ADHD. I see this mainly when she's playing with her cousins which makes the situation even more complicated. Anyone have any strategies to us help her??

Feeling very lonely at the moment and all I want to do is lie down and sleep. But I can't sleep because all I can think of is how much I hate myself.
