So I woke up this morning with a horrible feeling that "something" was going to happen...it always does in this case. I tried to pray it away and shake out of it, but I couldn't. I thought it was just the enemy messing with me. I got to the court house and I was the only one there. Everyone was running late and they were ready to call our case. Ummm...once everyone was called in we waited an addt'l 30 min. for the judge and for Bio-mom who was trying to find a notary to swear her in.
Once all was said and done Mom appeared by phone. I was confused why she was there and quickly found out that she had filed an appeal on the "surrenders by non-appearance." The judge heard the motion and was about to deny it, but then Mom's lawyer (who can actually get Bio-mom to be quiet--miracle!) convinced her to give her a trial. Why no one thinks these things are important to the foster parent I will never know! I was totally blind-sided :(
So here we go...pre-trial is Dec 1st. Exactly 2 years since Little Man came to us!!! Trial is set for Dec. 9th.
Bio-mom has a "plan" to have him transferred to another foster home in her state and she can work a case plan there. She still has no job, has been denied ssi and takes care of her ailing mother. There are so many details about the timeline of her filing a motion that are just crazy and purely absurd. I of course can't go into details, but sigh.....
Oh...on a positive note...Bio-dad's rights were terminated!!!!!!
The Lord has a plan with all these delays and EVENTUALLY LM will be ours FOREVER!!!!!
