Reasons for Reunification:
(1) I feel that the mom is realizing her problems and would work on correcting them
(2) She needs to continue with her rehab and get support to continue with it.
(3) I believe that if the natural mother wants her child, it can never be taken away permenately as long as the mother continues to work at her problems. She needs support.

Stay with resource parent:
(1) Moving and separating a child is a very difficult matter. I believe it has a lasting effect on the child.
(2) If her resource family is stable, this will hopefully give stability to the child.
(3) Child can feel secure and see stability in their lives
