I also wanted to point out that their "court reporter" social worker was intimidating and provoking the family with her dossiers. And, that instead of following Judge Kessler's orders, they are ramping up efforts to take the child. AGAIN!
"Hi, David," I said. "I haven't heard from you for about four months."
"That's true" David answered. "But, I have been working very hard on your case."
"Is that so?"
"Yes. You are right about so much and we are trying to fix things. You just have to trust that we are."
David is a nice enough guy. He tells me what he knows I want to hear...agrees with me often...and then disappears. WHOOSH......WHOosh....whoosh...and he's gone. No emails, no calls, no messages...no David. "Oh, yes, he says after four months of silence, I am helping," he assured me.
THE BEST HELP DAVID...WOULD BE TO OPEN THE DOORS ON DSHS. THERE HASN'T BEEN A PEEK.
He said he would call off the rude and purposely provoking social worker.
"What about the foster mother, David? Remember, the one with the unsafe house?"
"Oh, you shouldn't judge her. She is actually very nice." (Is that to say you don't like the grandparents? Or, you just don't have a desire to know them?)
I asked, "Well, David, she says at 43 she has never been married. Yet her name in high school is different than the one she has now. Was she adopted late in life? Did she take on a different family name? And, who then is the man? if you go to the white pages you see a man listed at her address and she shares his last name." (He also answered her door claiming she no longer lived at the house and showed up in court with her to get the restraining order.)
"I don't know anything about that." I believed him. They never went past her application in checking her out. NAME________and
ANY FELONY CONVICTIONS?_______. That's it folks.
Whoever the guy is (and he is a different race so probably not a brother)...it is evident that the foster person has not established any bonded relationship throughout her post high school life. She seems to have difficulty forming normal lasting relationships (so how long will she want a child?). She is in and out of jobs and men. Who is this man listed at her address? Why didn't you know this David? Do you just give kids to whomever?
"Well, David. You are missing the point. This should not even be a matter under consideration. The little girl is suppose to be with her family. Both the grandparents and the aunt and uncle passed in home studies with flying colors. You need to follow the law!"
CONCLUSION: David says he "gets it" and is helping. What do you all think?
