    Doesn't seem like there's much care there, does it?

    I assume she also has joint legal custody of the brother. How long has it been since she's seen him?

    I don't think it has ever been said that it has been "years" since DG saw Serenity. She did see her regularly in the beginning after the separation/divorce. It seems that it only after CD moved unexpectedly (without informing DG) that DG lost contact, since CD also stopped taking calls from DG. We don't know for how long, or if she was able to see Serenity after that. We are told that CD made it difficult to near impossible for DG to see Serenity, despite repeated attempts. But we don't know how long it has been.
    As for why DG didn't take more drastic measures, it has never been said. Perhaps she didn't want Serenity's life to be disrupted yet again, so was still trying to take care of it herself. That, however, doesn't totally explain why she (DG) didn't even know that Serenity was in the Home.
    Also, I agree that when Serenity was taken out of the custody of CD, that child services (or whoever) should have at least gotten in touch with DG, since she had joint custody. That part really bothers me, but I don't know where the blame lies - with CD for not telling child services that DG had joint custody, with child services for not checking Serenity's records as to custody, for DG for not stepping forward, assuming that she even knew about the event at all. There's too much we don't know.

    I find it hard to believe when CPS removed her from the home, they didn't get back round information that told them who the other legal parent was so she could be placed with her.

    Yes, that part is really curious. At the very least, they should have contacted DG.

    The paternal grandmother claims it's been years but who knows----DG hasn't said and neither has Lynne. Why is that? I think it's significant.

    And she was returned to them after 3 weeks. So did they investigate and find the claim to be untrue?

    I am not positive. I have read things saying years (3ish) but I have not seen a specific time frame given. We know DG likely hadn't seen or talked with Serenity after she was admitted to BHCH since it has been said DG didn't know Serenity was there so minimum of several months (7 if I recall based on CD and KD articles Serenity was at BHCH in July of 2018.)

    That is my understanding of how it went down. So maybe it was found to be an unsubstantiated/unfounded claim or they could have determined it was false allegations.

    I also find it odd that DSS didn't show Darcie as the adoptive mom in Serenity's file. Unless contact info was out of date, they didn't look hard to find her, maybe CD told them she had been absent for years and didn't know how to contact her.

    Edited to fix spelling error

    Didn't DG say Chad moved and she didn't know where and then he moved back and she didn't know that either? That had to have taken more than a short amount of time. I'd like to hear the other side of the story. So far, we've only heard DGs side via Lynne.

    Yes, DG stated that in her interview with Lynne.

    I too wish we heard the other side. I have only seen some comments about some things here and there.

    I give CD credit for not airing all this dirty laundry out in public and letting the court sort it out.

    Good on Lynne for keeping Serenity's name out there but taunting the attorneys in her video was a little over the top.

    Can the compound be searched with a warrant?

    18 miles from where little Serenity went missing. I doubt it is connected but I am glad they found his remains. :(
