Stuck Kid

The kid's been occupying a waiting room now for five days and four nights awaiting psychiatric hospitalization. His adoptive parents are locked in there with him. He's a teenager with a history of sexual trauma in infancy, mild mental retardation, and he's somewhere on the autistic spectrum. His hormones are raging, and he can't control himself, directing it toward his mother, sister and pet. None of the psychiatric facilities in the entire state are willing to accept him. This is not unusual. On any given day, there are kids like this. Stuck.
