Well, I think I told you what trouble we were having with our caseworker. The last visit I had 2 weeks ago, she came to. She brought along a coworker and introduced me to him as my new caseworker. She was taking a paid leave of absence and returning to grad school. Well, I was blown away by this news. Was glad because I didn't think she was doing her job properly. But MAD because it is at the end of the road and this new caseworker knows nothing about the case. She did tell me that the agency did file for termination of parental rights, but doesn't know when.
I am planning on
calling the new caseworker to set up a time to talk about this case. I
don't care if he thinks I am being "Psycho Fostermom" as some foster
parents are called. I am advocating for the rights of my foster
child. If I don't, who will? How will he fight for termination if he
doesn't know the full case? I've also learned that he has never done a
termination hearing before. These are the times I want to cry out to
God and say, "Why are you making this so difficult?!!!" But my heart
tells me that it is not God making this difficult-that it is a flawed
system and that God is carrying us through. Honestly, if I was not a
Christian, I don't know if I would've been able to make it this far
without ending up in the looney bin! The Dad's mother told me that she
has been trying to talk sense into him-that Princess is better off with
us, but his teenaged girlfriend won't let him hear any of it. She wants
to play house.
God give me strength to
hold my tongue when I am around them. I am leaving it up to you, with
your Almighty wisdom, and the Judge!
As always, Blessings,
