Yesterday we had another court hearing. What a roller coaster!!!!! It started out good hearing that they had decided to terminate the other parents rights due to their failure to complete their service agreement. However, it quickly went down hill when we realized they had decided to rehire their attorney. This is the attorney that has managed to get them all their previous extensions. After waiting til we were the last group in the waiting room we finally got called into the courtroom. This was VERY interesting because sitting at the table was the twins' father in shakles. He had been arrested Friday and was transferred over from the jail. You would think that showing up in handcuffs would AUTOMATICALLY end this case. However, somehow their lawyer still managed to get yet ANOTHER extension. (even though the judge said they are already over the legal limit for time on this case) Luckily, this extension is only for two weeks. So, we will be heading back to court June 9th. Funniest part of the experience though... after we had been dismissed the judge stood up and was trying to lift up this big file...which he quickly realized he was unable to lift, so he calls over his bailif to come get it. This file was the case file for the twins and their siblings.
Hopefully, June 9th we will have better news!!!
