The date for reunification has been set and surprisingly I'm doing Ok. Probably because A) it hasn't hit me and B) I'm at work where meltdowns are not welcomed nor do I have time for one.
We knew when we started the process the courts were pushing for reunification. Unfortunately, with that trend the standards of parenting are being lowered and with that the child is the one that suffers - ultimately so do we, as a society. There is a hearing for women’s and children’s issues this week, right down the hall from where I work and I’ve been tempted to write something in regards to the foster care system.
I just can't find the time to be an activist this week. :-(
