thats sounds quite positive, wildflowerlady and personal care can be a bit of a sticky wicket. its good he is starting to find other people. its good she is going in to see him face to face and can give you a good account of how hes been. youve done so well getting him this far making sure that he is being properly cared for. could it be that he recognised sister voice and acted up[sorry for want of a better word] like children are good for people they dont know but are rascals for their parents. has the home rung you about the slip, is he saying it. breathe, remember what the social worker said as thats probably how hes acting so dont worry and phone if need be just to check. it maybe he is just saying these things to make your sister feel guilty and take him home.
