A sad time for our family

As frequent readers know, something has been going on in the background regarding a family friend. We were hoping that perhaps this friend would be able to come and live with us due to some family issues at the friend's home that are very difficult and sometimes disconcerting. We have been anxiously awaiting the decision made by the courts, but unfortunately it was decided that another course of action was to be taken. It is a very sad time, especially for the Girl, who has been so counting on this friend to remain in the community. It wasn't up to us, but we tried to make it clear to those in power that we were there to stand in whilst things cleared up for this difficult family situation. However, the friend was unable to stay in the community and was brought this afternoon to a new situation, where there is at least a 45 day commitment. We are very sad to have this outcome, and we wish this family and our friend a time of great healing. We will make every effort to keep in touch with our friend, despite the difficulties involved, and we have told our friend how much s/he is loved.

There are many tears at our house this afternoon. We will miss our friend terribly.

Isn't it awful when you feel so helpless.......?

Been there, felt that.

My deepest thoughts are with you and the Girl, Margalit.


Trying to get around a bit more these days - I have been slack in my blogging!

Michele sent me, Margalit.

More drama? Wow, your life never gets easy, does it?

I hope this situation doesn't hurt your daughter's friend in the long run. It sounds like you're talking foster care and that can often be a problem. And other relatives, in troubled families, are often little better. Good luck to the friend--and your daughter--in dealing with this, Margalit. 6 weeks can be a long, long time.
