>If the hospital won’t keep our son, then there are other places that won’t take him. Most offer the same level of care.
Interesting that everyone talks about how our son is falling through the cracks.
I told the social worker from the hospital that we would bring our son home if necessary until he can begin at facility that we have chosen. He didn’t seem to think that was a good idea, and recommended Foster Care. The social worker also thought that the school would provide an in home teacher for our son. School ends next week. Given their track record, I doubt that they would do that. At least not this year.
We are talking about a child with abandonment issues, how is placing him in a foster home going to make him feel? Waiting for the doctor to call from the Psych Unit. Also have calls into the Partnerships Care Coordinator. The question here, isn’t “what is good for mom and dad?” the question here is “what is best for our son and the rest of the family?”
I don’t believe that putting our son in foster care until a bed opens at the facility we have chosen is a good idea.
