Wasn't Becky going to apply?
Laws vary by state. I will do a little research on Oklahoma and email you tomorrow after work.
Keep your chin up girl.
your totaly right.
usualy i just work overtime
but half a million is MUCH better than min wage!
awww Jez, don't you know it's not NICE to make me cry before I go to work???
but thanks for making me feel good : )
do you have any objective advice for us as the grandparents? you can email me through my profile.
ps you rock ; )
HOLY S#$T!! I'm sorry Becky. When it rains it pours... and I definitely know the feeling. When you were talking about your job the other day on fb I was thinking how hard you work. That is one of the things I think I respected most about you from the beginning. Respect doesn't come that easy.
I can tell how overwhelmed you are right now and I, like you, have no desire what so ever to raise another child. Taylor is 17, I would sooner slash my wrists that have another one.
You know we are all totally here for you, I think you also know that I have worked for the State for ten years now and I train social workers-- both Child Welfare and the welfare department. And I started out with the state doing CPS investigations. If you have any questions, I would be happy to answer, objectively.
Otherwise, I say yes... go for BB. All that drama would be nothing compared to what you've been through.
no she HAS Zayde... she only left him with us for 24 hours rather than just a few hours that night..
but I do think shes going to dump him on somone soon. She often lets him go all day without a bottle, leaving him to SCREM in his bed. saying 'hes crying himself to sleep' when we get hom and ask whats wrong wiht him.. Ill see that mornings bottle laying on the night stand. and Ill get him and fix him a bottle and hell eat one and a half and chow down til he throws up he eats so much..
she leaves him in the same outfit for 2 days and I MAKE her change him, or bathe him. shes too interested in being on the computer and texting. she thinks that if she ignores him, either dh or I will take over.
we agreed that were not going to raise him BECAUSE we have no legal way to take him away forever. She could dump him on us then just swoop in and yank him away whenever she felt like it.
Ive had my kids taken from me once and my heart cant handle it happening with a grandbean.
plus weve almost gotten our kids raised. Were not going to start all over agian. She got herself into this, so she has to grow up. If we keep bailing her out shell NEVER grow up and accept responsibility.
ITs the HARDEST THING IVE EVER DONE, watching her take bean and leave our house. Im so scared for him and his well being, and I miss hhim so much I hurt.
But its necessary. I just wish so badly it wasn't.
Maybe I SHOULD apply for BB huh?? ; )
OMG Becky, I don't even know what to say.
Holy crap Becky!
oooohh see how yall are???!!! lol I get bogged down in life for one day...
ok more like 3 months....
