Bubbles - Quick update

L had a long talk with Bubbles' parents. They are going to the judge to request her to be moved back with us. She also said she'd get in touch with us first before they took the new baby. I'm gonna try not to think about it too much and just see what happens. TPR on Bubbles supposedly scheduled this Dec. I'll update if I get any new info.

K is doing great in my school. The classes are smaller and the attitude has been staying at home for the most part and away from school(which is good). He did almost get an expulsion hearing,but he just didn't think about what he was doing when he brought a prescription itching powder to school. We are signing adoption papers and should finalize in 4-6 months. We fight like brother and sister, but we will both make the best of things and try to live with each other. I know it sounds bad, but we are probably his last hope.

I complain about him mostly to relieve stress. This is my place to vent and unless you're taking a teenager and struggling with teenage issues, plus the extra from abuse/neglect, don't judge me. Just because I vent here honestly, doesn't mean I'm not trying to do the best for K and my family. I am dealing with social workers who are basically telling me I'm on my own if he gets expelled from school after the adoption. I have a child who lies and those lies could cost me my entire family at any given moment. I live in fear of what will happen next at school(with 2 suspensions already this year). This is WAY beyond normal teenage issues.
