Our family of Five

S's mom had court today. The news is that the next hearing will be on May 24th, so for that time, unless something changes, she will be living with us but will now be going to spend the weekends with her mom.

I was relieved that it was not time for her to go home yet. It is hard that it is still looming and obviously things are moving forward seeing how they are letting her spend the nights there on the weekends. There is a lot that happened in court and in a way, Mom is back at square one. She has a lot to do before S is officially sent home.

thanks for the update. i am praying.

amos had unsupervised visits with his biological mom until the day they terminated her parental rights.

i am praying they will not send her back until mom can be sure she will not put S in harm, and if mom can't get her act together, i am praying they will TPR soon so S can attach to you adn get on with her life. what a little sweetheart she is.

we did get our kids back in the end bug SO MUCH HARM was done to them while they were away... but I am trusting God in that too. He does heal the broken hearted and he loves sweet little S more than you do. (what a comfort!!!)

I know it hurts, adn I know its hard... cling to the ROCK!

(Tomorrow is our Gottcha Day... we have had them back 2 years!)
