It is a question that a friend asked me and I did not have an answer and was hoping for some advice. Her parents are overbearing and emotionally abusive and she sees no way out except this because she has tried to involve Social Services and her mother has managed to get out of it every time. She truly does need to get out of the situation. She is also having a child and doesn't want it subjected to the situation. Please help me where I can help her. Foster care and Social Services are not an option at this point because Social Services is ineffective with her family and she doesn't want to raise her child in foster care for a year. Thank you for any advice that you can offer.
