    “I cannot even imagine doing that to a child that has issues already"

    Ummm - that's not the way it works - the reason the kid has problems is because of how he's been treated. You can bet this has been going on for some time. And pills are not the answer.

    I agree with you, I was thinking the same thing! There is no way I would let a child be with those crazy people to just see what happens! What if they did actually kill him, then what?? "Oh well we planned on telling the school?" I feel so bad for this child, I hope he will never have to go back with them. May he be with a family that will love him God bless him.
