It’s remarkable to see Ke’onte now—a happy, bright, well-spoken young man—and imagine that he would need anything other than a loving family in order to thrive. Yet he received no less than 12 different medications while in foster care—up to 5 medications at the same time. He received medications used to treat seizures, which he never had. He received medication used to treat bipolar disorder, a condition for which he has never been diagnosed. I am not a doctor, but it is difficult for me to imagine any valid medical reason for those many drugs being prescribed to someone so young.
