What can we do if we adoped a child that has special needs without knowing it? Posted on August 04, 2011
An adoption agency in Texas did not inform us that the child we adopted had special needs and mental illness. My husband and I are not trained or equipped to take care of a special needs child. We requested a healthy child, especially a child that was not addicted to drugs, and mentally ill. We have been forced to provide extensive medical care and psychological treatment for this child. The child we adopted is now 7 years old. Even though doctors have diagnosed her and prescribed medication, the child is still combative and violent. We do not feel safe in our own homes. What can we do?
