That about sums up how I feel right now.
To add insult to injury, last night we were told by the case investigator that "C" also has a broken arm.
Could it get any worse???
I did talk to his father last night and he's already retained a lawyer in an effort to get custody as soon as "C" can safely be discharged from the hospital. Now we're waiting for our background checks to clear with he judge on Monday to hopefully allow us temporary custody of "L" and get her out of the foster home.
I hate waiting...
In the meantime, "C" and "L" 's mother has chosen to stay with her boyfriend and continue to live in the house where the incident happened...
... she's on her own. How do you help someone who doesn't want to be helped? Easy, you don't.
Our energy is completely focused on making sure those children are never sent back into that place ever again, and if need be, to a mother who would let this happen and protect the one who did it.
