I wonder why it has taken my 10 yr old bipolar/Pervasive Developmental Disorder (PDD)-not otherwise specified adopted son being taken into State custody to get the help he needs?? Why did I have to go to the State and say "I cannot have him in my home anymore" to get them to really listen? Why did it take him breaking every window in my apartment for someone to step in? Now, I'm sure he's scared and angry in a new place (a foster home at this point, which isn't going to do anyone any good, including the foster home). Still waiting for "approval" from those in power to admit him to a long term residential facility. I am heartbroken, tired and depressed. But hey, I'm only the mom, right??
