We met V's mom the other day. It wasn't too bad. She cried. It was sad. I'm not sure she realizes what's going on and she has some serious issues. She thinks V, who is 12 weeks old, can talk and crawl. Ummm, yea, riiiight. The social worker said for us to just ignore her odd comments. That can be done.
We take V to have supervised visits with mom 2 times a week for an hour. If mom completes her case plan, she will get V back. Dad also has a case plan he is to complete. Although I think he's still in jail.
Initially little V was giving us a hard time eating. She's doing much better! We took her back to the doctor tomorrow and she had gained almost half a pound in 4 days! Yay! She's still got a ways to go, but she's doing so good, considering what she's been through.
Meanwhile, teenage mom and her baby are doing wonderfully. She applied for the local community college and is searching pretty hard for a job. She brought her grades home the other day and she had all A's and B's. We're so excited for her! She's going to have a busy month. Turning 18, graduating highschool, Christmas and recommitting to the foster system. We hope she stays on track and makes it. My husband and I plan to support her and her son as much as we can and we excitedly wait to see what she becomes.
We're really enjoying our crazy life right now. As to that, I need to see about getting this kid to sleep.
