Our difficult child had a bit of a depressing evening. Her bio mom got out of rehab yesterday, and I figured she would be over anxious to visit her daughter, so I left a message for her to call me when she came home so we could try to set up a visit for tonight. I had a few hours free, and since I have to supervise, I thought it would be great, especially since difficult child has been over anxious to see her mom. Well, mom never called, so last night, I called her again, and she sounded like she was excited, promised she would be here, and talked to difficult child for a while, but had more interest in what was going on at home than talking to her daughter (kind of upsetting, but it is what it is). So, after she told difficult child she would be here tonight, she got so excited, and sailed through her day waiting for tonight. I got a phone call about an hour before we were supposed to meet, and she was saying she wasn't coming. Apparently, instead of waking up this morning and immediately calling her Parole officer to get permission to leave the county, she waited until it was almost time to leave, and then could not get ahold of her. UGH I was so frustrated, because I knew that difficult child was going to be crushed, but what do you do??? Honestly, I just don't know what this woman is thinking, because if it had been three months since I had seen my kid, you could be darn sure I would do nothing else that day besides call my PO to be SURE I could make it happen...but instead, she waits until the last minute and couldn't get anything accomplished. So difficult child says she is a little "sad" but that she will be fine, I think she is finally maturing to the age that she has come to expect this sort of thing, but I cannot imagine that would make it any easier....geez, who knows??
