The cherubs had a therapy session with Miss Mary again last night. We're going to try and meet weekly until court in September.
Miss Mary has assured me that if the State wants a direct opinion, she'll give them one. She will tell them that the cherubs repeatedly tell her they want to stay with us. They repeatedly tell her they do not want to go to Dallas. She will tell the courts that she agrees with the cherubs and we are the best option for them for permanency.
I pray she will word things more strongly and in a way that is favorable to the courts.
Miss Mary also agrees to talk to Grandma N in Dallas if that's what the State wants her to do. She kind of threw her hands up in the air though and muttered to me, "What exactly am I supposed to say to her?!" I indicated that I didn't think anyone had ever asked Grandma if she really WANTS the children. Miss Mary said she could ask. I also said that I doubted anyone had told Grandma WE WANT the children. Miss Mary said she could discuss that with Grandma as well.
I'm actually hoping that Miss Mary does talk to Grandma. It's been two years and I've never heard Grandma say more than two words. I'd love to know how she really feels about this whole mess.
I really do like Miss Mary. The System ticks her off as much as it does me!!
