Dude and Dolly's grandma was supposed to come to court today. She called CPS yesterday crying. It seems she lost her wallet that contained all of her money and her bus tickets. She will not be able to have the visit with Dude and Dolly or attend court.
This could change nothing. CPS has informed me (quite sternly) that they are still recommending the children go to Grandma. I was told that Jasmine has spoken with her supervisor and the case has been staffed out. It is all but a done deal.
However, the lawyer wasn't convinced on Friday that going to Grandma's is the best solution. Grandma not being able to show up could change the game plan.
Granted, Grandma could have honestly lost her wallet. Or, this could be a convenient way to not have to put forth any effort with the children. And since she's done nothing with the children so far, I have a hard time believing the story that she lost her bus tickets.
Mie -- tell me more about the intervening please. If the children don't go home I want to be legally considered at the next permanency hearing. I welcome all advice!! Either comment directly or email me at cherubmamma at gmail dot com.
