I am seeing RED!

I have been informed that court today was essentially a waste of time.  I can't give details but transcripts were not fully complete ("all except the last few pages") and there were critical people that did not even show up to court.  Scheduling of course was near impossible so they will try again in October.  
After 5 more months of waiting for this, we wait again.
No progress.

I am seeing RED.

I have had many jobs.
If didn't show up...I would not get paid.
If I didn't complete my responsibilities...I would get fired.
If I didn't complete my report within the guidelines of the law...I could get sued.

In this case, where vulnerable children are involved, there seems to be no consequence for making children and families wait.  For unpreparedness.  For accepting that "this is the way it goes sometimes" is good enough for children.

I am seeing RED.

There I've said it.
Can't say that I feel any better but now I will get back to the daily business/chaos of taking care of this family.
There is no time to dwell.
I have no time to wait.
Thanks for prayers for the kids.  Keep 'em coming.

Thanks for the support. All will be fine I am sure.

There are few things I hate more than a lack of accountability. I'm so sorry for your disappointment and hope it goes better next time.

@Kara: You said it perfectly. No accountability! I feel like my hands have been tied behind my back. My girls are worth it and I too hope that it goes better next time.
Thank you everyone for the encouragement.
