Suzanne Doll

Shannon should be reunified with her mother because:
-her mother has worked hard to have Shannon reside with her and wants her home
-based on her past, mother seems open to services
-Shannon would continue to be raised within her Native American culture
-Shannon’s mother did relapse, but relapse is part of substance abuse recovery
-Shannon would be raised with other relatives

Shannon should stay with her Resource Parent because:
-They would provide a stable environment and want to adopt her
-Shannon would be in school and her education would be monitored
-Shannon would not be exposed to substance abuse and potential neglect due to her mother’s issues
