Quick court update

January 31st, 2017 at 09:15 pm

Court went well. BM ended up pleading guilty to all charges and the kids will stay put for now. The judge handed down a long list of things BM must do before the court will consider returning custody and BMs attorney assured the judge BM would comply.

Fast forward ONE DAY and BM was arrested at a drug house in the company of the person she was ordered to stay away from, plus resisting arrest, evading, contraband, etc, etc… …basically disobeying every item on the list from the judge. As of now, BM remains in jail- day 4.


So, we continue on with the system. It sounds like she will receive an additional 6 months to comply with the court orders or likely lose parental rights permanently.

    I'm glad the kiddos are staying put for right now! As adoptive mom and previous foster care mom myself, I know you have to be shaking your head in disbelief at BM's actions. The addictions are stronger than the person's goals sometimes. God bless your family.

    I guess what she is saying is she will not and does not want to comply. I'm sorry that the process has to be so drawn out for the kids and your family.

    DMTM- I agree, I would like to just shake some sense into her and her mom, who enables and covers for her at every step. I am just glad the kids are away from the craziness that addiction brings.

    Thank you all. I appreciate the kind words. WE are the ones who are blessed though. These kids bring us so much joy. They truly are just part of our family.

    I'm glad those littles have a family like yours to fight for them. No matter what happens in the future, they'll have that to hang onto.
