Circles.

So, when I came back I talked to Lizzy's social worker's SUPERVISOR because I don't like talking to the social worker.

I did make sure to tell the supervisor that...and why.

Regardless, it was very interesting to hear what she had to say and to hear her reaction to everything that I told her. It was a good conversation, but what I walked away with left me feeling like we are all just going in circles.

She told me:

"A lot of things are going to have to be looked into before they have ANY unsupervised over night visits."

and

"There are a lot of red flags in this case."

and

"Well, obviously anything could happen."


The last two are words that are probably spoken about EVERY foster care case.

I feel so bad for Lizzy. She wants to be with her biological dad so much. The fact that he has no legal rights to her says volumes about what a mess this child was born into.

It truly is a mess! I am glad, though, that you are there to be a pillar of strength and calm for Lizzy in the middle of this storm in her life. None of us will ever know the lasting effects of your presence on her life. Keep up the good work.

It's amazing how it's all unknown for so long then in the blink of an eye it all starts moving at lightning speed.
