James tested positive for heroin when he was born, resulting in his first removal from his mother by CPS. He was then adopted by his grandparents. By age 10 he was begging for food at local stores. This caught the attention of school faculty leading to his second CPS removal for physical neglect and emotional abuse. He was placed in a Residential Treatment Center (RTC) and diagnosed with ADHD and exhibited violent outbursts. He was on a cocktail of medications and maxed out on dosages.
