On a good day, parenting will test the integrity of your character. On a bad day, parenting will test your will to live. Parenting children with trauma histories will cause you to test the integrity of everything and everyone you thought you knew, for the rest of your life.

Massachusetts General Hospital called today to do a phone interview. They were gathering history and psych evals on Sissy to see if she qualifies for any of their research programs in the pediatric psychiatry unit.

Boston is a long way but if it means we get help for Sissy that my stupid state can't provide, so be it. I'll figure out the semantics later.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my U.S. readers!

I hope, for everyone's sake, that you are able to get her into a long-term residential placement.

I hope they have a program that's suitable for Sissy. Boston is a great place to visit; you might as well see the sights and have some great lobster and clam chowder while you're there.
