They trailed the hearing again because the bio mother was not able to get permission to travel from her probation officer, and she does have a legal right to be present.
That is the only issue, though, and we are looking forward to a successful TPR on April 21!
In other news:
Instead of the scary mean social worker -- the one who told me that if I made waves I would never see Z again and never have another baby placed with me again and that when she moves kids she just gives them a toy and "they're fine" -- someone else was there, the social worker who taught our foster parent training class in Sept-Oct '06. We asked what she was doing and she said that the witchy SW quit - she was essentially forced out!
That made me almost as happy as a successful TPR! She will not be intimidating any more people or treating any more kids callously in that job, thank heavens!
