If YOU don't know, I certainly don't

The Bmom of Boy #2 who has been with us since he was 3 months old finally called today out of the blue. I haven't heard from her since Christmas. When I had to make her take him for a visit.
Well, today it was as though no time at all had passed since her last visit. She just wanted to pop on over and pick him up for a visit. I told her I didn't think so, there was a court date she had missed and I was unsure how visits were to go.
Since it's supposed to go to TPR* (it's only been 2.5 yrs)I told her to call the S*W.
I called his new S*W to give her a heads up that bmom may call and to be ready.
After I explained to her the conversation I'd just had with mom, she actually said, "I don't know what to do, I'm new at this. I'm going to have to ask someone else and get back with you." I will insert here, that this is the 3nd new s*w he's had in the last 3 months.
Not one of them knows mom's history or even what's supposed to be going on in the case...after 2 1/2 years...Jimenyfriggincricket !

GRRR. That post makes me so mad. I understand that the SWs get bogged down and tired of their jobs but good grief give this kid someone who is willing to read a flippin file!

Hold strong D. Put them in their place mama!

Grrrr! Very frustrating when those who are supposed to be in charge don't know how to handle things. And the child loses again in this situation.

Have I told you how much I enjoyed getting to talk with you, however brief it was? I wished all weekend that I would connect with you again, but the time just flew by. Hoping all is well with you and yours. We are being buried in snow, which is harsh after Orlando, but other than that, doing well. Stay in touch!


We had a case here of severe shaken baby...blind, vegetative.Part of mom's sentence was not to be around kids for ten years. She got pregnant again. (someone saw her walking down the street and reported it) and that baby, now 3, was taken away in hospital. Then someone sees her on Facebook that she is preggers again and the 3 year old is going to come home to her soon. And guess what? It was true! DCF didn't know about the first shaken baby (now 7), her jail time and probation.... WHAT??? I said WHAT? Needless to say they were not reunited when people complained.....and babe 3 was removed from her.
