I’ve received tips of more news on the Twelve Tribes recently. In the last week, a child has returned to their parents and has not yet been found by child protective services.

I do not understand how the seventeen year old is not being assisted to deprogram rather than being sent back to her abusive parents. Yes, I agree they are caught up in this as well, but while they are in the abuse dynamic, they will be no help to her and that community is not a safe place.
