So case worker II came this afternoon.
She wanted to go over all of our criteria.
The list started and ended with: you are looking for adoptive placement.
hmm. aannnndddd? (I said with more of a look than with my fabulous (haha) verbal skills)
Caseworker II went on to say that she was kind of wondering about that because we really would open our chances of getting an infant if we were foster to adopt.
"yes..." I say "we ARE SUPPOSED to be listed as foster to adopt.. just like the conversations we have had, just like the emails that I have sent all stated...." and again I went over what we are open to.
OH! she says....
Okay... well... we have these placements all the time!
Let me sum up the rest of the meeting:
I kept my cool
I communicated very clearly
I was kind
She listened and wrote things down
I gave her the names of our friends who have had a case that we are very open to mimicking
I explained to still keep us in the safeh@ven list.
I then tested all of our smoke alarms for her... and showed her where the fire extinguisher is.
She left by saying "okay! see you next month - or far before that with a placement!"
I really think we are on the same page now.
I really think this last three months have sucked ass now knowing that we have been on the wrong damn list.
