One time, during a supervised visit at the CPS office, Ricky announced that his art piece had qualified to be entered into an elite art show. Rebecca was there, with CPS's permission. She was happy for Ricky and congratulated him. She put her hand on his leg and gave it a pat.
One time, after a supervised visit, when Rebecca was saying goodbye to Ricky, she gave him a hug and a kiss on the cheek. Ya know...like how a mom would do. Ya know...like how I do all the time.
For 14 years Ricky didn't get love and adoration like this. For 14 years Ricky got physically abused by his bio mom. The only time he got a pat of congratulations was when he sold drugs and brought home money for his mom to use.
But somehow in all of this, Rebecca is the bad guy. There must be something inappropriate in their relationship. A mother figure hugging and kissing her son?! Oh my stars!! How horrible! (insert sarcasm...lots of sarcasm)
And now the song has been officially sung.
Ricky had his monthly meeting with Emilia last night. I told him to be bold and to demand to know what happened in court.
He did. I'm so proud of him.
It's obvious CPS has NOTHING but these incredibly innocent observations to go off of. They've questioned members of Ricky's family that knew both of them before CPS got involved. They do not have anything to investigate Rebecca on.
But it's enough to keep Ricky in formal foster care until he turns 18.
