It’s now been 4 months since the court hearing. Miss D awaits approval of her guardian group from the judge and continues to live at the secured location. She has made a few friends and is being visited by the nephew she raised. The granddaughter made a visit with her children and I hope the relationship between Miss D and granddaughter will be repaired if she chooses to come back into Miss D’s life.
I continue to spend time with Miss D as her friend. Each visit she asks me, “When am I going home?” With her short-term memory loss it is a repeated question that fills our time together. I do not have the answer to that question. Whether she gets home or not, it is a persistent request of hers to go home and I hope the guardian group will make that possible for her.
