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.”
