On July 9, 1996, K.M.T. and C.L.T. were removed from the custody and care of their mother, appellant E.A.T., and placed in shelter care. In January 1997 E.A.T. signed a stipulation which stated that, because of her alcoholism, there was a basis for concluding that her children were neglected within the meaning of D.C. Code � 16-2301 (9)(C) (2001). *fn1 The Superior Court later adjudicated the children as neglected, and after a disposition hearing in April 1997, placed K.M.T. in foster care and entrusted C.L.T. to the care of his maternal grandmother, V.T.

Over the next eighteen months, the court held periodic reviews *fn2 and generally continued the original dispositions. However, on February 5, 1998, the court found it necessary to reduce the frequency of E.A.T.’s visits with K.M.T. to once a month. E.A.T. noted an appeal (No. 98-FS-270) from that order. On November 17, 1998, the court held a permanency planning hearing in which it found that it was in the best interests of the children to change the goal of the proceedings from reunification of the children with their mother to long-term foster care, followed by independent living for the then fifteen-year-old K.M.T., and to permanent custody with a relative, possibly V.T., for C.L.T. E.A.T. noted two additional appeals (Nos. 98-FS-1807 and 98-FS-1870) from the orders changing the goal.
