Yesterday was SO bithday and he kept getting calls from the county jail. I thought it was probably because she wanted to reach out to wish him a happy birthday but probably not. He is the first one she runs too whenever she is in trouble. That is ok because he has never come to her aid.
Yep MethMom is finally in Jail! She got arrested for possession of a controlled substance (meth) she obtained a lawyer and took deferred adjudication 2 year's. She violated and a warrant went out for her. Our home was searched at 230AM.....to serve her and take her into custody. Almost 2moths later she is arrested.
We have had THE TALK of appropriate communication with her while she is in Jail and now it's here.
1. Correspondence thought mail is for the kid. Pictures are ok and any written letters are going to be passed by me before mailing ( his idea not mine)
2. Any letters sent by her he will let me see. ( His idea not mine)
3. Phone calls for the child??? ( I'm sure he will probably accept after a while for the child only) I'm ok with that.
We have spoken about visits in jail but was unclear of what we decided on. It was kinda left open.
Ok here is my take on it. I would not want bio mom around at all unless she is clean including the process of jail and rehab.
What else is appropriate for a 5 year old in this situation?
I had a parent like this and I didn't go see him in jail ever.
Thank-you all in advance.
