After two weeks, Justin was well enough to be discharged from the hospital and placed in a foster family. For the next few months, he made remarkable progress. This was the most rapid recovery from severe neglect that we had yet seen. It changed my perspective on the potential for change following early neglect. I became much more hopeful about the prognosis for neglected children.
