Last week I got a letter in the mail with sibling visit dates and times for the rest of the year, every other Saturday. Nobody bothered asking me if we were available that day or time, but so goes foster care. As part of the letter Grandma was asked to attend the visits as we'll to continue a relationship with Alex. This is the caregiver he was removed from who currently has temp custody of his sister. Grandma is also supposed to call Friday afternoon to confirm the visit.
Today I got a call from DHS worker, he was AT court in the Judges chambers and needed to know my name and address. That's right he went to court and didn't even have basic information like where the kid is living?! He called me back about three times asking questions he should know the answers to.
About an hour later my agency worker called to let me know the sibling visits will now NOT include any of the Grandparents. Didn't tell me why, but did confirm she would call Friday and let me know if the visit has been confirmed.
Did I mention no one told me there was court today? Ugh!
