Motor Home.

Lizzy's bio mom and bio dad have split up for good. Lizzy's mom has moved into a motor home over an hour from where her dad lives and the agency where Lizzy's visits are held.

Yesterday she called me up and in her "I haven't taken my meds in a while" shaky voice asked me if I would adopt Lizzy because she wouldn't be able to come to her visits anymore because she has no ride after this week.

I told her to slow down and asked her if she wanted me to call the agency and set up a ride for her because it doesn't make sense for her to give up over a transportation issue (and for the record once I heard "motor home" I immediately thought to myself "This case is going to get in TPR") so I am going to try to help get her transportation through the agency which I am sure she will start blowing off soon enough.

This is not going good at all. Both mom and dad are done. Done with their relationship, done with dealing with CPS...just done. One of two things are going to happen. Lizzy's case will start moving towards TPR or CPS will give her back to her mom at the WORST possible time.

That is just so heartbreaking on so many different levels. I tried to imagine what it would be like to call the person who had my baby girl and ask her to keep her, but I couldn't.

I am saying a prayer right now for all of you.

Can't even imagine being in her situation. How desperate she must feel. Sometimes it is easier to think about how screwed up the birth families are to make it easier for us, but at the same time, they have struggles, and as unfair as it is for the kids, they need help too. Praying for you, for Lizzy and for her mom. To make the best choice. And for everyone involved in her case that they would think about the best interest of Lizzy.

Who has "Lizzy's" best interests in their in their hearts? God has I'm sure. But who among humans has? This little girl who has done nothing wrong bears the brunt of adults' really bad, stupid choices. Someone has to make the right choices for her. Praying for everything to be right for her and for you.

i find it interesting that the mom is calling you directly. I have been a foster parent for 14 years and in 2 different states and have certainly never had a bio parent that was allowed to contact me directly. (or me them) Imho mom should be calling the caseworker about these things, not putting you in the position to be helping her out and counseling her. Maybe its just me, but I have enough taking care of the children without seeing after mom's baggage yet. What do you think?

I missed this post somehow. This doesn't sound good. Praying for sweet Lizzy.
