from a locked post on Sandy's blog:
Josh continues to get worse & worse. The last 2 nights he's spent a good portion of the night crying & hitting the walls. This means, of course, that i get very little sleep in the process.
We've found a program that would be perfect for him & would help find the things that would help him and get him transitioned for a group home, but the paperwork & red tape involved in getting him admitted are going unconscionably slowly and the speed in which it moves seems to be directly related with how badly off Josh is.
