I hadn’t heard from our caseworker in a couple weeks so I caved and did what I hate doing. I emailed her for an update. I fully expect in her mind the answer was ‘oh, you know… just pulling kids out of broken, abusive places and making sure they are safe but let me stop what I’m doing and email you a little something’. But instead, she gave us THIS:
Thank you, thank you, thank you sweet woman! You have made this a VERY good day. So we will probably set a time next week to meet up with her and go over files (and that is a whole other blog post). I’m kinda disappointed we don’t have an adoption specialist assigned yet because statewide staffing won’t be helpful without someone there to represent us. Thats where all the kid caseworkers and all the resource (thats us) caseworkers meet up and try to make connections. It is coming up very soon but will be hard without someone to match us. Oh well, we know we will get the kids we are supposed to, no matter when that is.
