I attended a school meeting for wm this afternoon. In attendance were therapist from day treatment, teacher, foster home SW, mental health case manager, guardian ad litem, foster mum, wm & myself. After we had addressed all the goals & progress wm left the room to go play gameboy. At that point, wm's court appointed guardian ad litem (it's a law, though unnecessary in our case), asked me what the time frame was for wm's reunification. I kind of stood there gaping at the woman. Before I could answer, mental health case manager replied that there is no time line. wm's guardian insisted that there must be a reunification plan. The court insisted on it. Again, mental health case manager answered & said, in our case, things were flexible. Guardian continued to insist that I answer with a definitive time line. Each time, CM answered for me. I finally asked guardian if she had a clue what had happened between the tweedles & just how complex my children are & left the meeting. Mental health case manager caught up with me. He explained that guardian didn't care for the case management in wm's case; she didn't like the open ended family of different addresses concept. Her plan is to take this to court & insist on a reunification date from the judge. He also explained that guardian hadn't read all the paperwork on kt & wm; the complexity of the situation. That her mind was set as this is the law. Children are not to linger in foster care. I asked CM if there were families out there clamoring to adopt wm. No...... So the problem is?????? The problem, in guardian's mind, is that wm isn't with his family - is separated from his twin. And that is wrong. She's gone above CM's head to his supervisor & complained of the lack of reunification plans for wm. Thanks for listening. I doubt that guardian will get far. Then again you never know.
