Court for a sibling

Tomorrow starts the court proceedings for PB's brother (Brudda) who has been in foster care for 5 years... this is attempt #2 at being TPR'd (termination of parental rights).  The last court proceeding was delayed.

Last Thursday I picked PB up from a visit. Bio mom comes out with the kids and the facilitation worker. It hit me like a ton of bricks... this could be the last time that Brudda gets to see PB and his bio mom. I wanted to cry right there. What could he be thinking? Does he even know? Is BM upset? Does she think that this TPR wont be granted and he will return home with her? She then had Brudda give PB a kiss just like she does at every visit. I wanted to swoop down and give Brudda a big hug and kiss and tell him that if something happens, I will contact his new parents and I will make SURE that he sees PB and they know they are brothers.

Don't worry... I didn't.

But I *WILL* ask the new caseworker if this is allowable... because I think that is SO important.

On a different note.. wedding plans are coming together.. we have a photographer. Now to lose 231829 pounds so I will let the photographer take pictures of me.


  1. You are such a generous heart - and sooo the right person for this extremely difficult situation.

    And don't worry about the weight loss. Just buy spanx. snort Congrats on the plans!!!!!!

  2. You certainly have your hands full.
    Do you want me to shoot you? With a Camera! Sorry, I should have been more clear.

  3. What photographer did you get????????????? HOW DID I MISS THIS INFORMATION?????

    When do you find out about the TPR? Or do you even get to find out???

    I have so many questions? we need to have coffee.
