My foster kids went home...

It was an interesting scenario, the judge quickly read through the paperwork before trial and basically mixed up what the mom was doing with what the 12 yr old daughter was doing. So the fact that the daughter was allowed to have a 28 yr old boyfriend spend the nite... etc, that stuff was all about the mom. (Which indeed, is none of our business who the mom dates and when he spends the nite...) anyways, incase I'm confusing you... the kids should never have been placed in foster care, and the mistake was corrected and they are back home with their mom. This is the flawed system we deal with... judges who don't prepare for cases, judges who make decisions with out reasoning, a foster system who pulls children from home, gives them no answers, traumatizes them for three days, and then sends them back home. Leaving both mother and children angry confused and scarred. The best part is last nite at the "foster parent appreciation dinner" all of cps was laughing at the mistake, that somehow I didn't seem to find amusing at all. Not to mention, all the rearranging Nick and I did of our home, our hearts, and our summer...

Boy, I hope I have better things to blog about in the coming days...
