  • Off Topic - Asking for your prayers

    Everybody here has been great for info, ideas and more than a few laughs. Now, I need all the help I can get.

    We have been fighting Riverside County, California Child Protective Services for custody of our grandson since February when we found out about him. He was taken from our daughter at birth b/c she's a druggie and placed in a foster home. The casworker at CPS has fought us at every step and swore he would never let us have him. So far we have spent over $25K on lawyers, travel, etc. We've had to become licensed by TX as full foster parents (not usually required but we were forced by the way the worker in Riverside filed the paperwork), which we just barely completed in time the the hearing this week.

    It all comes down to a trial this Wednesday when the Judge will make a final decision. We need everybody's thoughts and prayers that the court will act in our grandson's best interests and place him here with us.

    Thank you in advance for your help.

                  I'm not much of a praying person, but I sure will make an exception for this one. That's a real cute grandson you got there.

                    cute kid...

                    And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them that are called according to His purpose...
                    God knows, and i will be praying.

                        Thank you all for your kind words. The big day is tomorrow. All of our documentation is in place and our attorney will be there to represent us. Rachel and I thank you for your prayers. I will post here with the judge's decision as soon as we know.

                            Thank you everyone

                            Thanks to everyone for your kind thoughts and prayers. The trial was held this morning and we lost. The judge ruled the foster parents get to keep our grandson and adopt him.

                              realy sorry to here the outcome.
                              so much for the system doing the right thing. CPS has never been on my list of people that have a clue. seems to be filled with the wrong people for the job. if a family member is able and willing they should be the first option.
                              you could always have the foster parents wacked. did i say that out loude.
                              thanks for the help
                              ......or..........
                              hope i helped
