          My DD and SIL practice open adoption. The birth parents of their two boys have limited visitation opportunities and the boys' two grandmothers have unlimited access to the boys. We are one big happy family, celebrating events and holidays together. Sue would join us in this life and would always (within reason) be a part of C's life, of our lives. She knows this and has known it since the beginning.

            This has been so heartbreaking. Please keep us posted on the outcome. Do you have any idea how the little guy is doing under his grandmother's care? So unfair to do this to this child. The emotional trauma being caused is just sooooo wrong in my opinion.

                Will keep you and little "C" in my prayers. Such a sad situation for everyone.

                  Sue tells B that he cries a lot and spends most of the time asking for Mommy and to go home. Sue calls B when C is really upset so that B can comfort him over the phone. He is hysterical at bedtime and wakes up throughout the night calling for Mommy. He is now staying over there 3 nights a week. He comes home exhausted and he does not let B out of his sight for a moment. He has to sleep in a bed right next to their bed. It is taking a toll on him and we hate to see it.

                    Cyndi, does the Guardian ad litem know about how stressed C is at his grandmother's house? If she/he didn't know about the grandmother's request to take him maybe they don't know about other details either. I hope and pray that it makes a difference.

                      As far as I know, the GAL does not know. She has not talked to Sue or B. The social workers may know but they also have not asked B about how C is doing during this transition time. Maybe Sue has told them and maybe not. This is the least professional job we've seen the state do so far in the years since B has been fostering. Maybe it's common but this has not been our experience.

                      To add to the confusion, C's natural mother is in denial that her parental rights are about to be terminated, so at every visit C is being told that he is going to come and live with her very soon. He sees her twice a week and comes home crying as well. This is all breaking our hearts.

                        Do they ever talk to the child? Seems like that would be big factor. Or is that only real on TV shows? Sue should already realize how much this is hurting him.

                          My heart just breaks for C. So confusing for him. His biological family seems to be causing more harm than good.

                                and can't you contact this Guardian person directly and tell her what is going on? This is so terribly unfair!
