Children in Crisis: Melissa's Story
When 15-year old Melissa Evans gives birth to a baby girl who is born with cerebral palsy, she has nowhere to turn for help. After leaving the hospital without her newborn, Ravon, the baby becomes a ward of the state. Due to her medical condition, Ravon is placed in the home of a Special Needs Foster parent.
This DVD contains a home visit by Melissa’s social worker and we see how she handles both cases, that of Melissa and of her baby. Included is the social worker’s oversight of Melissa administering medication to her infant daughter.
