Re: “A daughter’s downward spiral,” the Now, Nov. 17.
I wanted to thank reporter Amy Reid for such a well written article about my granddaughter.
Reid did justice to her memory and brought much needed attention to this horrific plight that is effecting so many young people.
Each time her story is shared, I have to believe it will have a positive effect on all involved.
On a personal note my son is driven to try to find not only justice for his sweet Adriana but to also help and support other parents who are going through the same nightmare. And sadly, there are far too many, which is really sad. There are many other “Adrianas” out there who need to know there is help.
Also, parents need to have the power to step in and decide when to have them forced into treatment if they are young and are a danger to themselves.
Again, I’m so grateful for all you did to get this told once again.
