Patience is not one of my best quallities. (I guess you all know that by now. LOL!) I have been up for a while impatiently awaiting to hear from state Department of Juvenile Justice about difficult child's length of stay and where he's going and what his rehabilitation focus will be. I called and left another message for the cm there reminding her that family therapy needs to be a part of it. Since the judge included mental health treatment on her order and Lord only knows how all this could end up - since there's the dss threat- I decided that if Department of Juvenile Justice doesn't include mental health treatment and family therapy for difficult child, I'm going to document it and send it to GAL, parole office, defense attny, etc. It needs to become obvious to these people that they are the very ones refusing to support the recommendations and go along with them, much less provide them. Furthermore, after the GAL made such an issue in court that I wouldn't address issues, I want it brought out that I have made every effort to get family therapy while difficult child is in a secure environment and before he comes back home to address any issue effecting his functioning at home. So who isn't cooperating?
