OK, DDD, sit down so you don't fall when you read this. PO wasn't there, I liked both the coordinator and the counselor who's being assigned and so did difficult child. I found the coordinator very down to earth. The counselor is under her trraining but is male, which will be good for difficult child. I talked tto them about the conflict between me and PO and said it was over him telling us one thing then coming to find out somethhing was different, me not trusting him, etc. The lady said THEY had to know the criteria for day passes, releases, etc in order to incorporate it in their plan. I liked them so much I ask if I moved to that jurisdiction meaning PO was different and this had already started, could they continue if that PO agreed and they said yes. So I signed papers and then we went thruu the intake process of them getting tons of info from me and difficult child. Here's hoping I didn't buy into something horrible. LOL! But comfort level and feeling like we were saying the same thing regarding the issues that should be addressed is so important. The IEP coordinator from the detention center had called about me signing difficult child's IEP for them since he got transferred so I met up with her while there, too. She found a way to keep it possible, although it will be difficult, for difficult child to still be able to get the advanced diploma, as long as he doesn't fail any classes. He's ttaking chemistry now and I'm not so sure I trust a detention center teaching chemistry well enough for a kid to pass any standardized test but we'll see. The counselors seemed to understand when I said I didn't want to be spending my time worrying whether or not PO was going to back up stuff and having to go thru koi just to get criteria for stuff, I want to be spending it working on resolving issues with difficult child's and my releationship and getting the comfort level back, etc, and so I still plan to move. I found myself at the end of the mtg getting distracted by thoughts of "what if we do this and PO throws another wrench in a release or releases difficult child the week of final exams at school district" and then remembered- oh- I can get rid of that problem and felt much better again. So I still plan to move. They are going to start individual counseling late this week with difficult child at the detention center but will be coming for a couple of individual sessions with me at the hhome on Fri and Mon evening, then they will continue individually with difficult child for 2-3 weeks then we are to have a very long family session that reveals their assessment or something like that. She siad she can tell PO at some point, difficult child has to be returned to live in the home or they can't go any further. I don't know who came up with this idea but somehow I find it difficult to belleve it was PO because he had been set on reentry lady, and so was his super, then all of a sudden he popped up with this and it sounds like it's the perfect answer- too good of an idea for him to think of on his own, in my humble opinion. LOL! If it turns out to start looking disastrous, then one aa new PO is on board, I'll ask about having it changed but as long as it goes the way they made it sound, I think I can muddle thru and it might actually be just what we both needed. For whomever sent prayers, support, and board juju....Thank you with all my heart!
