He thinks she is dead - Page 2

Well she called the night before his last visit and asked if we could bring them, since her car was in the shop and fixed but she didn't have enough money to get it out yet.

So we brought him, it was freezing out and she wouldn't answer the door, so I had dss wait in the car, while I banged on her window, she was asleep and couldn't hear the door. Its not the first time this has happened.

Kinda ticked me off a little, she knew we were coming, it wasn't early morning, it was 4pm. She doesn't work or have other children, so she should have been up and waiting for him.

Of course I didn't say anything, but I did email her and tell her I won't wait out in the cold for her to answer her door. So from now on we will wait 5 minutes. If she doesn't answer I will go home with dss, she can come and get him when she wakes up.

Yikes. I guess I just don't understand that.

I'm hearing impaired, so it would be easy for me to not hear the door. But if I had asked you to bring MY SON to me, you can bet I would either be hanging around the front door or at the very least, coming and looking outside every few minutes. Certainly I would not go to bed!! I'd do that just out of respect for you doing me a favor, much less out of respect and excitement for my son.

I take it she did eventually wake up and let DSS in? I sure hope so.

Your dss is blessed to have you in his life. Step-parents put up with so much and then take a lot of grief just because of who we are; I find this site so discouraging sometimes. Folks come here for support and then really take a beaten because 'you signed up for this, you know', etc. Anyway, God bless you and your dss. You go way above and beyond for this child and his mom. It's people like you that make the world SO much brighter. Thank you.
