Well home visit went well on Sunday. He actually sat dowwn and had dinner with us and talked. (this visit was just his visit from the temporary placement) Today though I had a horrible day. We went to court today to see if difficult child would be coming home. I had everthing in order, the papers for the new school, the papers for the drug and alcohol counseling, everything. I had my chance to talk but then his so called attorney talked and he says "In the best interest of the everyone I think he should go to placement" I truely believe their minds were made up before we got there, because they had a guy from this boys ranch was there and irronically they had space for him today. So they took him right from the courtroom. He'll be there for 6 months min. My husband couldn't be there so I was alone to deal with this. As if even if he was there he would of been any support. I guess it's a mom thing wanting your kids to be near you. So now he is 3 hours away with 2 phone calls a month and no idea of or if visits will happen. I FEEL LIKE SH*T!!!! Sorry guys this is not a good night Such a headache from crying all day. I feel like I've let him down even though I tried to help. What do I do in a situation like this, how do I cope without difficult child feeling I abandoned him?
