Our Count Down - 20 - the day

Thank you for your support. It means a lot to us.

We arrived at the court in time, sat down, saw the guardian and his teamleader pass and then the lawyer who was with us the last time.
He stopped and I explained why we didn't contact him, told him what happened. "You can do it yourself very well", he told me. He's such a kind guy and his smile really made me feel confident.

We had to wait an hour.

Then the girls were called in by the judge one by one.

They came out very content. They'd been able to say what they wanted to say, ehich had not been the case the time before.

Then it was our turn.

Youthcare said they wanted to end guardianship because the girls did well and it was difficult to work with us because a lot of energy went in dealing with our feelings about the way we were treated by childcare. (They said it in different words, but this is the content of what they said.)

Then childcare had their say and ofcourse they didn't agree. They still clinged tremendouly on what that teachers had said and they completely ignored what youthcare had said.
Now suddenly they stressed psychologic assessment because the girls might function well but there might be underlying problems (haha) and I was happy to be able to say that the therapist of one of the girls didn't see an indication to do a psychologic assessment and I don't see that either, that I was the one who proposed it to childcare so they would see the girls were not the way those teachers said they were (depressend and fearful), and that has been fallen away not the school states the girls are doing fine.

They said they trusted what was said about the girls by the former teachers, because they had signed statements. And I tild the judge that a signed opinion doesn't say that opinion states a true fact. It still stays an opinion and nothing more. The judge smiled.

Well, now we have to wait again until the judge decides between believing those who are clinging to their mistakes and youthcare who has spoken with school and other people and who want to end this farce.

So it didn't feel like Valentine's day at all.
