Great news!! That restores my faith in the system just a little bit :-)
Update pg 10. Yay!-The ever-present CPS fears have materialized for us - Page 10
Random people have been in court, for the entire time (the whole five minutes they give you), during my cps case. So there is no reason to assume that StormBride is lying. My ex husband's family likes to come and be nosy during my court hearings. The judge allows it as long as you state your name and relation to the child (and family friend seems to be good enough).
As a foster parent, I've sat in on many, many, court cases. Our courtrooms are open. Anyone can sit in and listen to anything they want to. I've observed adjudications, reunifications, case plan changes, terminations, etc.
Well, I waited for her all the next day, then called. She said she'd be out to see the pack n play on Fri, but no-showed. I just waited, keeping it immaculate in here. Then this Thur I wrenched my shoulder and three of the kids got sick and things kind of fell apart a little. So, I decided to stop waiting and called her to ask her to please just come out so we can get this over with. She called back and left me a message. I saved it and will never delete it. She decided to just go ahead and close the case w/o seeing the pack n play! It's done! It's OVER! Yay! Just had to come and share. Thank you again, everyone.
