Born Ready!

Happy New Year! It is going to be a good year. It is looking more and more like Piggens aunt joyce will be given custody. It has been a long struggle and there will be big relief when all is finalized. From experience I know how hard it is to raise a child and to try to do the right thing always but to do it with both hands tied behind your back has been extremely hard. So when his Auntie has total legal control over that boy he might find he has a few things coming! Really just kidding, between... Sign in to see full entry.

We're back

Just a note and to say I sorry I haven't posted the progress with Piggens. First of all, He is still with his Auntie or I could say us though I don't live with them. It is so wonderful and I think he is an amazing boy to be so optimistic after all he has and is going through. I know he has had his anger bouts and becomes someone else entirely but those moments are subsiding and are shorter and less dramatic all the time. His big fear was whether his Aunt would actually come through and have a... Sign in to see full entry.

A miracle, maybe?

The courts finally are allowing Piggens his medication as advised by several health care professionals and you know what? It seemed to take effect on day one. It is adderall and Auntie Joyce told him it is for helping him concentrate but that first day he said he felt calm which is a blessing after the struggles Joyce has had with him and his own struggles. We can only pray this is going to work as a tool for Piggens to make it in this world. He is really one sweet boy if you met him and the... Sign in to see full entry.

haircuts and a boys life

Sorry its been so long for an update. The good news is that we still have Piggens but its still an up and down emotional wait for this to be decided. It is hard to say what the toll is on Piggens because he knows something is up. With all the questioning last month how could he not. That has subsided but things are just wacky- the poor boy had'nt had a haircut in a year because his dad said he couldn't. At the start of the school year last year his dad had Piggens hair shaved and I really don't... Sign in to see full entry.

The guardian ad lidem

Things haven't been moving much meaning we still have Piggens. Joyce talked to his guardian ad lidem and she appeared to be taken back by what had transpired, especially when she heard the cousin had talked to Piggens alone. The DSHS seems to be wanting to be rid of Piggens to the state of Texas so they would never have to deal with Piggens dad Charlie again. I can't blame them for that but what is best for Piggens needs to be the focus. That is what is the guardian ad lidems job is too- to... Sign in to see full entry.

In from Texas

Joyce and Piggens met the cousin from Texas and it looks like money will be the deciding factor over love. The woman is a grandmother of eight and has a seven year-old foster boy. She came in dressed to the nines in highheels to show her status. I wasn't there and I only know what Joyce told me. It seemed everything Joyce tried to talk to her about her and Jordan and she stopped her and said there is two sides to every story- which is crazy because she does not know any of the story because...

Kids say the darndest things

Life with Piggens seems to be on hold. One night Joyce and hime were lying in bed and Joyce asked if he would want to go to Texas and he said yes and said it would be fun if he and Joyce and Stanley went down there. She said it would just be him and he would live there. He imeddiately sat up and yelled "No". It may not have been the best way to let him know of that possibility but he needs to know before he is on a jet to Texas with some stranger. Besides he must have known something was up the...

bad news

This might be the end of the line. We have been informed the cousin in Texas has a foster parent license and thus is "more qualified " and will be taking Piggens. We are at a lost and do not know what to do or who to look for help. The boy is so happy now and would be broken to be sent somewhere else. His dad is pushing this and he can't leave the state because of law issues so he is hurting his own son just out of spite for Joyce. Sign in to see full entry.
