    Thank you for writing to me - my heart goes out to you. The road ahead will be very hard for all concerned. Not knowing the geographical location you're in my best guidance is to contact local hospitals and your interventionist should be more than capable of locating resources (I expect they are very few).

    My prediction would be that change will occur when your daughter gives birth. As heart breaking as this is, the systems that have failed to help her to this point will become involved when she becomes a mom. My prayer for you and yours is that this life changing event results in treatment and change. Please take all th serenity you can in knowing that you are doing everything you can. Blessed be, Jim
