Probably not, but WOW, there are a lot of changes with his case all the time!! Lil Buddy has been with us for over a year now. He is 2.5 years old. He has been in care since he was 5 months old. Still no permanency. And we thought we were getting close, but apparently NOT. Ugh.
We have court on Sept 22. That's just an "update the judge" hearing. We are supposed to be able to say, "Yes, we are close to transferring him to his biological grandmother." But, now it looks like that may not happen.
His bio grma lives in a county about 6 hours south of our county (same state). That county will NOT talk with our county. Finally our CW got in touch with the caseworker down there and the CW down there says they are not planning to approve the home. It's a lot of little things that really shouldn't matter. But that means we'll probably go to TPR in November and grma will have her own atty who will fight her case and it just drags on longer and longer and longer. It's just highly ridiculous. Lil Buddy should not have to deal with all of this. And the longer it goes without permanency, the more things he's missing! He should be in therapy for his autism, but they don't want to start it here because he'll probably move... well that's been 3 months already! Sigh. Bless his little heart. This is just nuts.
All of the red tape will drive you crazy, won't it? It's sad how much falls through the cracks while we argue over what's in the best interests of the child. I'm so glad that he has you to watch his little back.
