I will also provide them with documentation that explains more information about her condition and effective ways of treatment. I don’t think the siblings are being abused. Sarah is doing things in reaction to her condition and I think the siblings understand that. The siblings also stated that they wish her to stay in the home. Family taking care of family is something that most families just have to do.
