My second oldest child was born with CP. He is 16 now and the time has come to start looking for a residential facility for him and I have no idea where to start. It's taken a very long time working through my personal guilt issues and setting aside my ego and the heart break to do what is best for him. He needs constant 24 hour supervision and care. I still very much want to be in his life I need help and he is becoming unmanageable and there are increasing safety issues. I hope I'm not judged as a bad mother or a quitter. I just have no idea where to start or what to do and thought maybe someone else had to walk this path already.
