Court appearance #3

Today we had a third court hearing regarding "Thor"'s case. We somewhat have a better idea of how the case will go. So... what the judge ruled was no reunification services, except for supervised visits by DCFS. What this means is "Thor"'s parents still have to do 4 or 5 different things to get him back BUT! The state will not pay for it, the state will not help them get into rehabs, etc. Pretty much state is sitting back and watching... not being proactive. I hope this makes sense. If not, if you still have questions, PLEASE ask!! We'd love to clarify and teach! We go to court again Dec. 12.

I have mixed feelings about this! My heart just breaks for his parents! More so, my heart breaks for "Thor". He has a lot going on and has had no choice in the matter. I will admit though, I'm excited (and a bit nervous) because ... with today's ruling that means we are one step closer to being able to adopt!!!

More then anything, please say prayers for the judges, lawyers, caseworkers, and everyone else involved in "Thor"'s case... including us! Have a happy day!! Love to all!

Will Dec. 12th hearing be the final decision? If the parents don't clean up themselves then Baby T stays with you guys? If they do then Baby T goes with the parents? How is that going to work?
