So I heard it’s Earth Day
so…. for those of you who don’t know, which is most of you, my parents have been trying to get custody of my little cousin for over 3 years now. his dad went to jail and he was put in an extremely abusive and neglectful home, but they never would fully agree to give him up no matter what my parents tried to do.
well, he’s 6 now and he finally got big enough and smart enough to realize that they can’t handle him, so he rebelled enough that his foster mother agreed to sign any papers my mom put in front of her. so as of last thursday night, my parents have temporary custody of him and will be working over the next few weeks to get all the rest of the official paperwork completed.
so weird to think that my parents, who are in their 50s, will be raising another child, but i’m so thankful that they were able to finally get him out of that environment. hooray for things working out!
