Parole granted.
I've just learned that Boo's mom has been granted parole.  This means that after 8 1/2 months of having Boo as a part of our family, we start all over from scratch with her case plan.  It'll be months and months before we know the outcome.

I cried myself to sleep last night. :(

On one hand it is a good thing for Boo's mom.

On the other hand, for you and your family... *hugs*

I wish I knew what to say.
I wish Boo had the promise of stability. I wish you did, too.
I wish for peace in the meantime for all of you.

All you can do is take this one day at a time OW. Easy for me to say, I know. I'm sorry you're hurting. You're in my prayers.

Even if Boo returns to her mother eventually, you can know you have made an enormous positive impact on her by having her during this time of her life. It is very hard for you to have the uncertainty, though, and I really feel for you.

Oh, I'm glad that there ARE some parents out there who are growing up and willing to work to get their kids back...but I'm SO sad for you. I'm sorry.

my worse fear-- How stressful for you. I hope Boo's mother can get her life together, but I also hope that Boo can stay with you forever. I'll be thinking of you.

I wish I could comfort you. Time to place things in the hands of a higher power.

My heart aches with you. I pray for peace for you and your family, and little Boo.

I'm sorry that your heart is breaking, and I will keep you in prayers. I'm glad you were able to open your heart this way even though I can't begin to know how much it must hurt.

Praying for peace and understanding.
