Can't get through to Josh's caseworker to confirm that she sent the "missing" paperwork to FailureOptions. We'd be maybe going down in person to pointedly ask *them* what the status is, but Zander was ill this morning (he's feeling better now) and we were pretty shagged out after morning errands, so we decided not to go there today. And thus another day goes by.
Chris Smith said: I know it's tough waiting to get through all the red tape, but keep on 'em. Don't let Josh's case fall through the floorboards. This placement will set him up for the rest of his life. It's important, so hang in there. We're all behind you on this one.
It's like trying to run a marathon with both hands tied behind your back: yeah, you can *do* it, maybe, but... (Or, as my daughter put it: "like...walking on a conveyor belt backwards...with little gremlins scurrying about trying to gnaw off your ankles.")
