Welcome to the wonderful world of foster care. They tell us Monday that the kids will be flying back to California on Wednesday. So we ask our friend, Tiffany, to watch baby Evan while we whisk the kids off to a whirlwind birthday party at Chuck E. Cheese. They had a fantastic time and we gave them all a ridiculous amount of tokens.
Then the county tells us that there's been a change in plans. The kids will actually be leaving on Friday. Then they say that CA has decided not to take the kids back after all, so they'll be staying. Then Thursday they tell us that CA has changed plans again and the kids will be leaving next week sometime, it's just not certain when exactly. Then Friday, shortly after the kids' first visit with their mom the caseworker tells me that the kids will be staying in CO after all, so they're looking for a long term placement home that can take all three kids. Once again, they're not sure when exactly next week, but maybe Tuesday. I guess we'll wait and see.
