Wow has it been a crazy week... difficult child 1's Defense attorney called and lft a msg on Monday wanting the victims (myself and difficult child 2) to say we weren't afraid so that he could be released. Needless to say I did not call him back... Tues... defense attorney's assistant called and asked for me...as soon as he identified himself I handed the phone to my husband. When my husband told him that I was not going to sya I wasn't afraid, the assistant threatened to call DCFS on us. This got me really fired up and I went straight to the State Attorne'y office and they informed the Defense attorney and the Judge that I was afraid as was difficult child 2 and now he is being held for a minimum of 21 days unitl the case goes to court. They are having a psychiatric evaluation done on him and then depending on the outcome possibly placing him in a residential facility to get stablized before he is brought to trial. I am hoping and praying that this new year is much better for are family.
