What a bizarre and sad situation/story.

|It's an ugly mess, and it goes way beyond the adoption angle (a whole 'nother horror show). Children with RAD and other difficult-to-cure, difficult-to-endure psychological disorders are born right here in the USA every day, and their parents (birth or adoptive) often find that they basically have three choices: 1) keep living in daily misery and fear with a sociopath 2) kill or hurt my child 3) kill or hurt myself. NONE of those three choices are acceptable, although the government sure prefers it when people choose #1, or even some version of #3 that doesn't necessitate the involvement of social services.|
That's not true, actually. I know several people who were having trouble with their teenaged (non adopted) children and went to DHS/CPS and asked for the child to be removed from the home and and it was done. The families got support and the kids were put into residential treatment centers and eventually returned when things settled down.
