I have read your post and observations. It's clear you feel a great deal of love for this boy, and that is a tremendous gift you're already offering him! Congratultions! Would you prefer a summary answer to your question, or would you prefer more back-and-forth, where there will be a series of more questions and more details clarified? There is no difference in charges for your preference.
Either way, I’ll do my best to take the appropriate time to help you.
that works! What, so far, has your sister tried, to try to obtain custody or complain?
Has she filed with the local department of child protective services? Has she expressed concerns with her primary care physician who could also file on her behalf?
I see. All of these things are fantastic.. He is lucky to have so many people at bat for his support. There is also an element of psychiatric care that will be vital to his success..
Without question, he should be seen by a psychiatrist, and will most likely need close therapy for a while.
Fantastic. Sounds like you guys have covered just about all of the important medico/legal options! Impressive.
Are there people in his life that are trusted and appropriate to serve as mentors/guidance counselors?
