I was looking forward to attending court for Jo Jo’s case for the first time. Yesterday I checked the online docket and the court date had disappeared. I discovered it before the caseworker. She looked into it, and the judge cancelled all cases that day. We don’t have a new date yet. I know this case would likely just result in another court date 3 months from now, but something was better than nothing. So instead we are just hanging out and cleaning the house in preparation for the home visit scheduled for the afternoon.
I enjoyed “The Fosters”. I, personally, really wish it was about fostering younger children, but that’s just because that’s what I do. I don’t have teenagers so it’s harder to relate. That being said, it’s immensely satisfying to see a family show that represents a stable home life that includes family members of different races, foster children, and a gay, interracial couple. Very cool! The only thing that the real foster family on the interview pointed out, was that they wondered why the family had a current foster license if they weren’t planning to take in more kids. Why keep up their license? But I guess the licensing process doesn’t make for good drama on TV. Also, I think it was a bit weird that the teenage son “Brandon” blew off a competition that he had worked so hard for. But whatever, it was for the sake of the plot, so kudos to ABC for doing this show!
