Three years ago two girls were found wandering along a highway. They were running away from home.
In the last three years those two little girls lived in 7 different homes, two of them children's homes.
Emma has been in foster care half of her life. She remembers very little of life before our home.
Michelle remembers everything, even walking along the highway.
Their biodad has relinquished.
Last week their biomom relinquished.
Still we wait for the November court date for TPR because there is a legal dad. A man who has never claimed the girls and has never visited with them. Yet, he has rights that must be terminated because the biomom was married to him when she gave birth to the girls.
Three years and counting. Some days I wonder where the most harm was done; in their biohome or in the foster system.
