Homeboy Update

I decided to call his case manager today around 3pm since I hadn't heard from anyone at CPS since last Tuesday. The little guy hasn't seen his family and there was no word on if a kinship placement was in fact going to happen. Let me also mention that this case manager is AMAZING and is actually the same one that placed Tank with us. He was very happy to hear that Homeboy was with us and knew he was in a good home. He called him "lucky"...  makes me feel good when CPS thinks you are a good home... cause lets face it folks not all foster homes out there are.

Court is tomorrow. I am not attending since it is just the basic stuff of them filing in the paperwork and saying that Homeboy is in custody. They are hoping that he will have a visit tomorrow with his mom. They aren't sure if she'll show... but since they are transporting I will let that be there problem not mine :)

They are working on a kinship placement. I don't think that they have been approved yet. I really hope that it happens. I know that family will be best for him. His siblings are already in this family member's care so it makes sense that it will work out. I just hope they will follow through on the early intervention stuff and get him the help that he needs. He is cognitively delayed and is capable of learning, in my opinion, if someone will just work with him one on one. Let's hope he just doesn't get lost in the shuffle.

The poor guy has also been sick all day today! He has some sort of stomach bug. He threw up last night in his crib and then again this morning multiple times. And then again at 5 pm when I finally tried some food and water... he tossed both up within minutes. I feel so bad for him. He just layed around most of the day looking miserable. If he can't hold down some crackers or water in the morning I will call the pediatrician.

In other news (or not news): We are still waiting for another placement call... we have asked that we only receive calls for a child 12 months and younger. I am praying that it will be a newborn or younger than 6 months. Either way I will be happy.
