Stupid title. But I can barely think straight!
My cherubs are going to be hanging out at our house for another three months.
I really know NOTHING. I believe the lawyer was able to draw things out because CPS neglected to take care of some paternity things. The bio dad is completely out of the picture. But there is still paperwork to be filed and, I believe, a genetic test to be done.
I'm not going to know the real intentions until I get to speak with the lawyer. I didn't get to go into the courtroom yet again. In fact, they had removed all but 2 chairs in the waiting area so I spent the entire time at court sitting on the floor with very nervous children. About 20 minutes after when our case was to be called, the lawyer stepped out of the courtroom and said that the next hearing would be in May. I was to make sure I brought the children with me then.
My jaw dropped. My eyes bugged out. She indicated that she wasn't going to discuss the case in front of the others waiting in the room. I am to call her.
I will be calling first thing in the morning!!
I got to meet a relative of Dude and Dolly that really impressed me today. Their maternal great-grandma is a neat lady! She and one of her sons came to the hearing today. We exchanged phone numbers. I hope to be able to talk to her about the cherub's history.
I can't wait to talk to the lawyer. I want to know what her intentions are. And then I may need to start getting my own legal ducks in a row. Boy this foster parenting stuff is a trip!!
