They have made great progress and have had set backs at the same time. Currently my 9 year old 'Superman Zay' has been just released from an inpatient mental health facility. He went through 8 months of therapy, but 2 weeks ago attempted to take his own life. Since then he was diagnosed with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. Sometimes, it's like I don't even know my son anymore.
We have court fast approaching. He feels weak and scared and all alone. I thought if some of you would could send a post card or anything to maybe brighten his day and let him know he isn't alone, that he has support to face the unthinkable.
My 15 year old nephew is also in need of support and courage "Bug" will have to face the accused at this time as well and although he hasn't required in patient treatment he is having difficulty coping on a day to day basis.
Superman Zay loves outdoors, and of course superhero (he is mine) and Bug loves the outdoors fishing and art. Art speaks volumes and the both of then use it as a coping skill. Thanks in advance for anyone that would like to send these boys a word of encouragement.
The family will be seeking a local B.A.C.A. chapter for support as well.
Cards of support (no physical or items of monetary value, please) can be sent to:
