She said she spoke with PO but apparently she spoke with him before getting the stuff I dropped off to her yesterday. Anyway, she said PO thought they could get difficult child into group home where he had a better chance is sd and academically. Then she wondered why I wasn't happy that this was the only answer she had. Well, I thought she was then going to ask about why a long term GH was jumped to as a placement when I expressed concerns about difficult child coming straight home. She said that GH was a shorter term and she knew it was. Yeah- and that's exactly what PO had me buying into, too. I had also checked and am aware that GH does and can give difficult child a short term placement, hhowever, when I talked to re-entry lady, she made it clear that no matter which GH difficult child went to, she had him in long term program due to the fed funding she was getting for him. I told attny that I was concerned she was buying into the same story I did from PO, only to find out from re-entry lady this isn't the plan she had at all. Re-entry lady had told me that difficult child would be in there probably 8 mos and their goal is to get him out on his own. This isn't even addressing the fact the the PO's super told me a couple of weeks ago that the video-conference was being set up so they could talk to difficult child and they might change the recommendation for GH altogether at that point. And- PO told attny that no call had been rec'd from Department of Juvenile Justice regarding a possible early release. I'll call them now. Attny is now going to call PO back and see if she can talk to re-entry lady directly or on conference call with PO.
