First to this very old post of a time when I was very frustrated, angry and the like. Thank you for responding because it allowed me to re-read the responses of others who are in my same situation reminding me I am not alone in this fight and for that I am grateful.
Now on to you mean spirited comments about my child who you believe I turned my back on. Since, I elected to focus my energy on 2 beautiful boys who don't have the ability of free will or self sufficiency. He is an adult who be it illness or not has the ability to choose. He choose not to treat his illness when he was given the tools an opportunity to do so. You see ma"am he didn't have to loose his kids because the support that I provide I was providing before the event. Additionally, if my other biological had cancer I would do all I could to support them unless they made a conscious decision to not care for themselves. As you indicated was necessary tool for your own opiate addicted child to become well. As for prayer, I continously pray that him and his wife who are together by the way woukd want to be apart of their children's lives as i was with mine.
However, I also could assume you dont have grandchildren or have never been faced with this delimma. Or even know the medical history of these children under five who had no one. Not even their maternal grandparents due to race (that is another conversation). DCF in my opinion failed them however today they are adopted.
