          Why A Mom Says She Had To Put Teen Into The Foster Care System


          September 6, 2017

          Vicki says when her daughter Elora was young, she was “wild,” “very unmanageable,” did a lot of “inappropriate things” and ran away.

          “I did consent for her to be treated at a psych unit three times, at least, but I felt I had to do that to keep her alive,” Vicki says.

          Vicki also admits that she put her daughter to foster care at age 13 for five months.

          Elora, now 27, says, “It seems like when parenting got stressful, her answer would be [to] just get rid of us.”
