Long story short,she lost her son in '09 due to him not being fed and not gaining weight. He's with his paternal grandparents. Dad's in prison(sigh)
She was ordered to get her GED,a job,own apartment,and seek parenting counseling. As of today,all she's done is the parenting class.
She went to court March 2nd,was told to have a steady job by October. Well we're going on a month later and she put in 5 applications. She has a job interview today,but the job is not something I feel she's capable of. It would be phone sales from 4-10pm. The job is 10 miles out of town and she would have to rely on her boyfriend to take her,or take a cab that costs $14 per trip,so $28 a day. She'd have to rely on her mom to babysit and my aunt rarely gets home before 3:30. There are multiple places near her that are within walking distance,and more that are reachable by bus($2 a day). I'm dumbfounded as to why she's relying on this one place to get a job. If she hasn't reached the goal set for her by October,her son is being put up for adoption. The state is DONE with her.She's had 18 months to get her life together and all she wants to do is live the single life.
Oh,forgot to mention,she also has an almost 1 year old as well. He's the one that needs the babysitting.
I hate to be negative,but if she gets the job and starts missing work and gets fired,there goes everything. She doesn't think!
My family is so upset over possibly losing this little boy. There's a good chance we may never see him again. She just doesn't realize that her actions impact all of us!

I am wondering the same damn thing. So they knew she wasn't taking care of one but then let her keep the other. How messed up!
