My Big Adventure....Part one....

I still haven't carved out exactly what I am going to share with you about this whole thing. I have decided that I won't go into detail about exactly what happened prior to the placement. We are committed to her placement in our home and we are committed to her healing. She also needed to be stabilized. I am not sure how the mental health system works in other states but in our state everything is waitlisted. Every where you go for help.....they put your name on the very long list waiting for assessments to see if you qualify for services AND then another list to receive the services you need. The most direct way to services is an in patient psychiatric placement.

I am still exhausted today. My theory is that I have been hopped up on adrenaline for so many months that as I relax alittle....I am crashing....so I need some sleep.

I have a few funny stories from our trip to the ER but I am falling asleep now....I just wanted to let you know I am still here and I will be blogging through my new adventures!

Be Well!

Hi Queen Mommy,
I just started reading your blog and am glad to have found it. I don't know where you live, but I wanted to let you know that I run a residential treatment program for kids with trauma issues and know quite a bit about the laws and systems around residential. I know the most about Oregon, Washington, Idaho, Alaska and Montana, but know a bit about other states too. If you have questions I'd be happy to share what I know. I hope your daughter gets the treatment she needs and that your family is doing okay.
