Many of you have followed my story of my son Jeremiah. I am sad to say I think we may have lost the battle with his mental illness. Jeremiah went to psych hospital the other day after cycling out of control with his therapist here. He went after all of us and we had to call the police. Went to family therapy on Tuesday and Jeremiah basically said if he comes home he will make all of our lives a living hell, he will hurt his dad when I leave for my retreat and he will hurt me when I get back. He is on probation and I have asked the judge to place him in a group/foster home with independent living being the end result and not reunification. The past few days I have really looked at all the options and this one seems to be the best for us all. My other 3 children need me to be there both physically and emotionally for them. They have missed out on so much. He will be placed close, visits and over nights will be allowed as long as they are earned. My rights will not be relinquished either. He is almost 15, much bigger and stronger than both his father and I, and he could do us damage. I really do not need or want to hear that I am a bad parent, am doing wrong etc so please do not post if that is your opinion.
Here is the place he may go to, its 4 miles from my home.
Okay need major prayers that we get a acceptance to the House of Hope by tomorrow. If not Jeremiah will be released and I will have to choose between opening up a DCS case or bringing him back home to deal with the torture. This place seems like it might be a good fit for him and its like 4 miles away from home.
