Diagnosis & BackgroundOzzy is a 7-year-old boy who is diagnosed with depression, PTSD, and developmental delays. Ozzy began displaying signs of depression at the age of 5 after he and his older brother were kidnapped by their biological mother who had lost custody due to neglect and abuse. Prior to Ozzy’s mother losing custody, both children had always been in her care. While in her care, Ozzy’s mother had changed residences a total of 16 times in a 2-year-period. Within that 2-year-period, Ozzy’s mother had multiple men move in and out of her residence and had accumulated18 domestic violence reports. Of which, seven included abuse directed at the children. When Ozzy’s father and stepmother were granted emergency custody, he and his older brother were 3 and 5 years old. Both children exhibited signs of severe delays in expressive, receptive, and overall language development. The children communicated through non-verbal motions and emotional tantrums/outbursts. Neither of the children had any “potty-training” and their eating habits were abnormal. Eight months after the children were removed from their biological mother’s care, their biological mother was granted a court-ordered visitation.

 Eight months after the children were removed from their biological mother’s care, their biological mother was granted a court-ordered visitation. The visitation allowed the biological mother to take possession of both children for a period of five days. Leading up to this visitation, both children had been attending weekly therapy and Ozzy’s brother began Kindergarten. During those eight months, both children showed significant improvement in behavior and communication skills. At the time of the visitation, the boys were 4 and 6 years old. When their mother was granted visitation, she lived in New Hampshire and the children lived in Texas. The court-ordered visitation allowed her to take the children for a 5-day visit within the county in Texas where they resided.

The biological mother picked the children up from their home and fled back to New Hampshire. Twelve days after being taken, the boys and their biological mother were located by law enforcement, and she was arrested in front of the children. The children were temporarily placed with a family friend, unfamiliar to the children until their father was able to travel to New Hampshire to pick them up. During the 12-day period that the children were missing, Ozzy and his brother were reportedly neglected andemotionally/psychologically abused by their mother, and their half-brother. When the boys were back home to Texas, Ozzy began wetting the bed, stopped eating, and stopped speaking. Over the next two years, Ozzy showed signs of improvement in his behavioral and development areas. He excelled in pre-school and kindergarten, academically and behaviorally.
