It's 8:15pm

And Lily is not home. Why, you ask?

Well, that's because this week is the first week they transported her to a city an hour away for her visit. Crappy enough in and of itself.

But, this week the transporter had a conflict. So, of course, we just pushed the visit back. She wasn't picked up until 4:15. So with an hour each way and two hours in the middle, that puts her back around 9:15.

But wait, she wasn't picked up until 4:30... so 9:30.

Only two hours past her bedtime. No big deal.

Oh, this just sucks. I'm so sorry - you must be feeling so anxious and just awful.

I feel for both of you on the delayed bedtime. People just don't realize how much things like that can mess the little ones up. Disrupted schedule = no fun.

She'll be home soon. You'll be able to stop pacing the floor and looking out the window to see if she's home yet. :) You are doing that, aren't you?

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO you guys are so too nice ot these people,, after hours is not your problem they need to do this in the day. That is so not right. I am so sorry ... MAYBE this is the reason they walk all over you... you do NOT have to bend over backwards for these people. sorry I just had to say it,, both you and Dream Mommy, do way too much for these people who treat you like this. hang in there

If she's hard to handle or appears affected by it I'd put my foot down. Volunteer to transport yourself on a weekend or something.

That is insane! I thought the childs needs are suppose to come first...:(

I am still in the camp of "why is she being transported out to BioFamily" in the first place.

Why, in dog's name, if these people are so anxious to be reunited and get to know Lily, are they not coming to your town to visit.

Completely illogical to me.

And completely rude of both the biofamily and the caseworkers to insist on a visit that is that disruptive to the child and the foster family. Seriously. I'm in bed at 9:00 p.m., and I wouldn't want my sleep and the next work day impacted by such a silly decision.

I feel for you. And I hope (and know) that you'll probably put your foot down should they pull that b.s. again.
