Testimony from RivCo mandated reporter has reported twice in 10 years. This was one of those times.

The family was former meth addicts and they would go to most appointments but not all. I know they loved him but he had special needs and diapers and was always dirty and I had to replace several cushions on his wheelchair because they were soiled. and these were cushions that could be washed easily.
