Say something, I’m giving up on you

Damian was placed at Rivers Edge Crisis Stabilization Unit in Macon, GA.  He was there once before from 1/5/16-1/12/16.

He is refusing to talk with us again.  Yep, the insanity of a 12 year old boy getting to decide these things is happening again.

Tonight I argued with the poor woman on the phone for about 20 minutes that it is not appropriate for a child to be given such decision making power.  She finally agreed to give him a message for me.

I know what she was expecting me to say.  I know as a mother what I should have said.  I know what my heart wanted to say.

But those words did not come.  Instead I said, “Tell him if he does not get on the phone I am not coming to get him.  Tell him I have been trying so hard for so long and that I need him try or I’m going to give up.”

A woman I don’t know who is taking care of my son tells me, “Mrs. Cronnelly, Damian says he has no mother and will not come to the phone.”
