So today I'm the one having a hard time. I met J's GAL (attorney) yesterday. After talking with her, I'm starting to think that she may actually end up going home to her dad. I've met him. I actually like him. He loves her and I do think he would do his best to take care of her. Could he do as good a job raising her as we could? Maybe not, but I believe that as long as she is safe and loved she will be better off in the long run with her biological family.
The hard part is not knowing. She might be here forever or she might be gone in a few months. I want to love her, I do love her. But if she's going home, I want to that to happen sooner rather than later before we all get too attached. Plus, she's already been in foster care for 4 years. It's time for her to be done with all this and move on with her life. I'm really praying that things will be resolved before school starts in August.
I sent an email this morning to her social worker. I'm not sure what's supposed to happen next, but something needs to happen soon.
