Hello everyone, just posting update and wondered how other grandparents handle suddenly raising young ones again, especially online school! For those familiar with my story I now have temporary care of two of my grands, my son has the other three. Its been a busy month to say the least. Main problem is mom has been very distant, i try to set up zoom calls almost daily but shes always has an excuse to not talk to the kids. For someone so adament of keeping the kids before she seems very remote. I hurt for the kids, they dont understand this. However mom has lots of time to text me to threaten, shes angry that shes losing her child benefits and said her lawyer is filing a motion to get the benefits back from us(i dont think revenue canada allows that though), and taunts me how im never going to see the kids again once she gets them back. My son is going to apply for permanent custody, im appalled at the learning deficit these kids have. Mom hasnt had them in school since beginning of last March, and school was not a priority before that either. She is signed up for emergency housing so once she has housing, I beleive if she gives a good enough story as to how shes going to address education, she will likely get them back. Theres so many on the housing list it could be awhile though. I hope my son can get custody eventually, now that hes proving himself as a capable parent, I think theyl take his custody case more seriously than in past. Anyhow just an update and thankyou for the support.
