Well, we made it through Lizzy's hearing, which, in the grand scheme of things could have gone better. I do think that she will probably be returned at the next hearing in June unless something crazy comes up.
Today, my other two girls had their hearing. It did not go so good. The referee said "You have two choices, give them back to the parents and dismiss the case or give it to the CPS in the state their parents are living in (which is not where I live)". His point being, get these kids in the same state as their parents. Our prosecutor does NOT want them given back to their parents with out a case plan being work and the state that mom and dad live in does NOT want the case. So, everyone is going in circles.
They have 7 days to figure it out. The likelihood of them being handed back to the parents is very small, I think in the end the judge is going to have to transfer the case himself which he said he didn't want to do back 3 months ago when he was in the court room.
I have no idea what is going to happen. There is a part of me that will be SHOCKED if they leave...and of course SHOCKED if they don't.
I already bought all of their easter dresses...we'll see if we make it that far.
