An even briefer baby update

So the baby's mom didn't show for a visit on Tuesday. The worker talked to her yesterday and told the mom she could have her visit today (the mom used to have two scheduled visits a week, but that hasn't happened since February).

The mom didn't show again today.

The worker talked to her this morning and the mom said she was coming.  It makes me really sad for the mom that she's in such a bad place that she can't get herself to a visit with a baby she has seen once in two and a half months. She also told the worker today that she wants to move into a halfway house, but if she can't follow through with a visit, I have my doubts that she'll be able to make it happen.

Because the baby is so young and the mom has missed two visits in a row, the worker will now require her to either be at the visitation center before they pick the baby up from daycare, or to call that morning to confirm she's coming. I don't know which would be better - the phone call is easier for scheduling (so I don't have to wait until the last minute to hear if she showed and call daycare to let them know), but she told the worker she was coming to both of the last two, so even if she says she's coming we can't believe her.

Oh, and the grandma canceled her visit for tomorrow because of a scheduling thing that could have probably been worked out pretty easily. So that's interesting.
