A friend just called me to tell me to look up Good Morning America's website and check out this article. This family has asked the state to take their child who has RAD back into the system. This is causing quite the debate on the website. The state is telling the parents they must take the child back into their home. My heart goes out to parents who are obviously living in fear. My thought is the state needs to offer them some serious support. It kind of appears to be an either/ or situation. They take him or they don't.
I'm sure this family loves their child with all their hearts. His diagnosis sounds complex. I think the main concern of the state here needs to be getting the child the help he needs. If in the home is not in his best interest, let alone that of his family, then they need to see he does gets more intensive treatment.
