I bet the first day of school is a nightmare for law guardians all around…
Sooooo fucked-up. Despite being fully registered for kindergarten in a public school, he was sent home because the school is out of space. Furthermore the school told Runfostermama that all of the appropriate schools to meet his needs are full.
Runfostermama said this:
"I told the principal that I cannot figure out if he is discriminating against him because he has a disability, is a foster child, is classified based on parents status as homeless, is not white or because I am gay. The last one’s not true."
Glad she has a sense of humor about it. The law guardian even called and wasn’t able to get anywhere. Such a nightmare. Does she get a babysitter for him now while she’s at work?
Sandy’s family just shared with me that she had an older relative named Clementine. Made my heart melt.
Sandy’s (every) 6-month permanency meeting went fine. No surprises. I’m paying Asia’s mom to babysit an extra hour so that I can do some retail therapy.
Clementine’s adoption court date is TENTATIVELY scheduled for October 30th at 9:30am. (Same week of Sandy’s birthday which kind of makes it bitter sweet)
Permanency conference- probably routine but soooooo nervous. Asia wants to come and I’m very glad she will be there with me.
- Me: Sandy-
- Sandy: Yes, boo-tiful?
We went to Ara, Ted, Harriet and Clark’s community garden cook-out today and Ara warned me that the kids would get filthy. “Is there a hose?” Yes. Not a problem then.
We knew there was a chance of rain but when you have kids to entertain- you push the limit. Right before it started pouring, Clementine was wandering around in her own dust cloud like Pigpen from Charlie Brown. When the torrential rain came, Sandy refused to get off the stage. She was screaming “RAIN!!!” and her mind was blown.
