I finally heard back from the executive director of the program that runs Fiona's group home. He basically said sorry, no bunny and gee I am sorry that other staff misinformed you. But hey on the positive side, don't worry because you should feel really good about the fact that we are putting steps into place so something like this won't happen again.
Oh yeah, color me ecstatic! Not!! I wrote back that I would like details on exactly what those wonderful step are going to be because I have absolutely no confidence in the program and no faith that when I get an answer from someone that I will be able to be confident it is a real answer and not just what they thought Fiona or I wanted to hear at the moment. I await additional response from him and also from the other agencies I have contacted about the way the program handled this.
What they don't seem to realize is that this is far and away about more than a bunny. It is about the spiral they put my daughter into by breaking faith with her. She didn't just break her TV that she spent 3 months saving for, she also tried to self harm. This is something that she only does when profoundly disturbed and it has not happened in over 2 years. The fact that this level of despair was caused by and agency that is supposed to have her well being in the forefront of their decision making very much angers me.
I have no expectation that I can change the decision. However I can be a person who holds them accountable for the mishandling and that is what I intend to do.
