First of all I believe that it was here that I posted last about coming to peace with losing my adoptive daughter after 14 months. Can anyone with more know how find that thread for me so I can just add to it?
Secondly, update. We had our level 2 review today and the woman who did it seemed sane. We got to speak about the level one review and the untruths in it, subjective opinions etc. It went fairly well and I got to say how I am grieving and missing my girl. She is going to speak with the Foster family support person whois an agent who worked against us with DCF, and to my therapist as well as to DD's teacher who made accusations, never to me, that DD went to school dirty and without drink money or snack. Not true, and she never mentioned any of these concerns to me. I am scared about it. I told her that my reputation had been ruined and that I have cared for dozens of kids, raised 3 with special needs and knew how to parent this child with attachment disorder. I told her my 20 year old DD was difficult to parent due to OCD and PTSD from 4 years old, and is a wonderful, charming, intelligent, moral young woman. I got to speak my truth. I don't know what it will be worth. You mothers all should know how I want my child back. Yeah, I know you told me that she's not mine and I won't win. Can you offer me a little hope and heart? Can I please get my reputation back? They stole that from me.
I post and respond to posts but I guess not being well known that I don't get a lot of responses. But I ask you to help with this. I know others have more serious issues but this is like losing another child to me. Help me?
