    Clancy,
    i think i remember reading about this some time ago and it was upsetting. I think its a good thing he is really young and will not remember much due his age at the time of offense. Thus a much greater chance of full recovery and a normal life. Ive taken several reports on this and have dealt with older pre-teen children that went through this and acted out in the cycles you described. Sounds like he went through many cycles and phases of recovery already. The child will have a resentment towards mom likely in the teen years. Hopefully the issues have passed and outgrown his length of memory by then. Keep him, raise him, instill values, involve in church groups, sports and or scouts to lay a good foundation. You are doing the right thing.

    I am glad to hear this. I remember your previous posts about him, his history of abuse, and you fears about him. It was heartbreaking to read at the time. It sounds like you have made a lot of progress with him, and he is on a good path.

    I would pull the trigger, go out for dinner, go home and sleep well.
