I just thought I'd stop in and update on the stuff that's all still up in the air. The sd is now saying they don't know who pays for education if difficult child goes to Residential Treatment Center (RTC). They have their attny's contacting state doe to figure it out. I can't believe no one has an answer to that already. Then, the lady supposedly arranging medicaid who told me last mmonth that difficult child was approved still does not have him in the system and can't tell me if it will cover Residential Treatment Center (RTC) or not. She hasn't returned my calls lately. I called the state about that yesterday and they said I needed to call her super. I'll try today, but I usually can't get anyone at dss to answer a phone. The sw from dss who's supposed to be working with gal about whether or not to allow me to place difficult child into Residential Treatment Center (RTC) through them or if difficult child is just going to be turned over to them (dss) by Department of Juvenile Justice so I lose custody and they place him with my bro isn't returning my calls either. That doesn't sound like good news to me but it could just be that she's busy. The place difficult child is now is not happy about any of this because they don't know what discharge plans to make and they said they can't believe that none of this is resolved yet. I gave her the phone number to the sw at dss to see if she can get some answers. I also called the gal and left message to try to find out something. We could go to the county meeting anyway if someone would arrange it- I can't arrange it. The place difficult child is now wants to talk to the PO- I never signed that release form. They said they need to make discharge plans with her. Well, any time difficult child has gone to court, the gal is the one making the recommendations and the PO isn't even asked most the time. Last time she wasn't asked a single question in court and never spoke at all. Do you all see any reason to sign that release and let them talk? All the PO will do is talk bad about me. She never was going along with Residential Treatment Center (RTC) as an option and wants difficult child in state juvy. I want him to go to Residential Treatment Center (RTC) and be released from Department of Juvenile Justice. I was hopiing that irf I'm allowed to place him thru dss, that will transfer him from Department of Juvenile Justice control and we could be done with the PO. I'm going to my therapist soon. If I'm sitting in her offic for an hour hearing how she wants to work with this county and telling me how wonderful the system is and that I should let them tell her what they want her to work on with me again, she's fired.
