Karyn Bower's granddaughter Meghan may be spending Christmas alone in foster care if a pending appeal for home leave is turned down.
A meeting was held at CAS today. It was to determine whether or not my grand daughter will be able to leave the group home and come spend Christmas with her family. This would be the first Christmas she is away from all of us. Her therapist at the home tells me that most of the kids go to family at Christmas and if she can't come home she would be sitting there with some volunteers ( not even staff she knows) alone at Christmas. Then she would get to feel the hurt when the other kids come back and talk about the Christmas they had with their families. In light of our conversations, the phone calls and a good visit , Meghan's therapist is recommending she be allowed to come home. My worker is the one putting up resistance. I have no idea what they have to gain, and it will be me who does the 4 hours of driving on Boxing day to bring her home. Things are not going to go well if they hurt her like this , this Christmas.
