MIA! Quick updates

A lot has happened in the last two months since my last post. Here are the bullet points:

  • Odessa graduated from high school. I got to go to her graduation AND meet her mom, but didn't get to celebrate with her.

  • Odessa moved to a new foster home. She refused to pack, so I packed her things for her. No plastic bags. When her social worker dragged her kicking and screaming brought her to get her belongings, the social worker commented that "we don't like to move kids in garbage bags, but bags are a lot easier to move." Uh, sorry?

  • I went on vacation!

  • We had two student interns in our office. Both over 18, both in the child welfare system, both ended up getting fired. That's a longer post that I've been meaning to write for the last month.

  • Odessa turned 18.

  • Sabrina's 6th birthday is in two weeks. I have to figure out what to get her. (Also my nephew. Turning 8. Any ideas for either of them are welcome.)

That's about it!


  1. I really impressed by the blog. I will review your post again.
    Thanks ....

  2. It appears that this blog hasn't been active for a few years, which is unfortunate! I'd love to know why Odessa left for another foster home.
