Shannon should be reunited with Caterina because:
–Caterina is trying hard to kick her substance abuse habits, even if she has relapsed
–Caterina seems responsible and had the presence of mind to contact Nathan and Marie when she relapsed
–the bio-parent should be favored if possible

Shannon should stay with Nathan and Marie because
—Caterina seems unable to definitively kick her habit
–they can provide a genuinely stable home
–Caterina has presumably bonded with them to a greater extent than with Caterina
