Souinds understandable that he could have trust issues. But unless there has been a dramatic change in his life, at school, with his biomom, or in your home, the puzzle is why he is performing less well NOW, when he performed better before, while carrying a similar burden.

You cant change what his mother does or says, but maybe you can usefully help him to understand what she's doign, and to find more museful ways to respond to that. And maybe a child psychologist would be a useful consultation, to help you understand him better and find more specific ways of handling the situation
