Family Court on Monday

United States
March 25, 2017 2:01pm CST
Sadly we have another family crisis. History has a way of repeating itself and unfortunately it has again. I pray that this will turn out well. The worst case scenario could have been planning a funeral. Fortunately this didn't happen. I hope that with rehab she will be able to find her way out of the darkness. Now I worry about my granddaughter. She is now in State's custody. Hopefully they will allow here to come and live with my husband and I. Prayers would be appreciated.

Thank you for the prayers. Sadly with addiction, even if they have been to rehab, they can relapse. I hope she finds strength this time to kick it. This is going to be a rough road to travel for all of us.

@ElusiveButterfly Prayers coming your way every day from me. Yes, rehab does not always work and so much of it is up to the individual.

@Corbin5 I know that she can do it if she puts her mind to it. However, I know she is weak too and can succumb to the temptations all too easily.

I do hope that they grant you custody so you can take care of her.

I hope they do Susan. The only other person that could take her is out of state. This would alienate her from family, and the little one will need her family around. Otherwise she will end up in foster care and I do not want that for her.

@ElusiveButterfly Foster care would not be good. Better to stay with family instead.

@Susan2015 I do agree. I have seen some go through foster care and they did not fair well.

Hugs my friend. I did stop just now and say a prayer for the situation, as well as for all people who are providing care to children who are not their own. I know you will keep us posted.

Thank you Heather. I know that I am not the only one in this situation. Sadly it is something that happens so often in our little town. I will keep you posted as to the outcome. I pray we will be able to bring her home with us.

@lovinangelsinstead21 when my granddaughter was an infant, she and my daughter lived with us along with my oldest daughter. The place was crowded, but we managed. When they moved out it was so quiet that even the cats jumped at the slightest sound. LOL. Yes, it is a joy to have the little one around. I would prefer it to be under different circumstances though.
