After two weeks of being polite, deteriorating to being politely threatening, Hope has a class. It is not in our neighborhood school, but it is in the same school GB will be in and runs the same hours, so they will ride a little bus together. The class has a special ed teacher, 2 teacher assistants, a social worker, and a psychiatrist several 1/2 days a week. It is meant for children with emotional problems and it maxes out at 12 students. Right now, Hope will make eight. An added bonus is that the department of special ed is located in this building. One stop shopping!
We are set to terminate the current parent’s rights and finalized Hopes adoption in two weeks, in Texas. We need to make some major physical changes around here, but I am reluctant to start them until Hope is really ours. I still get mixed messages from Hope’s current family, and I guess there is a part of me that is afraid they will still back out.
