Double visits for Oliver today; Bio Mom from 10 a.m. until noon, Bio Dad from noon to 2 p.m. Did anyone change his diaper? Yes ... at 1 p.m., the contract worker overseeing the visit changed him. Did anyone feed him? Yes ... at some point, he drank four ounces of rice milk. Nothing else in his snack bag was touched, nor was any food reportedly brought in by Bio Mom or Bio Dad. (Four hours people. Four hours with a sixteen month old. And no food.) Did he nap? Yes ... he screamed for forty-five minutes at the first visit, then slept for nearly an hour. Then he screamed an hour at the first visit, then slept forty-five minutes.

Heaven help my poor baby boy.

Oh MG! I'm so sorry for little Oliver and for you & your momma's heart. :0( Praying that he recovers quickly from today's visits and turns back into the sweet little boy you know him to be.

My heart breaks for him, and for you to have to witness it. Praying that God gives you both the strength to make it through these visits!

Where was the "social worker"? Good grief; my kids couldn't/wouldn't go 4 hours without a snack!!

The worker was dilligently taking notes of how unable to meet Oliver's needs his bios are.

I hope.
