We had the meeting with the social worker the other day about the baby that is in our care. The question came up about adopting her, I said oh yes of course I want to adopt her. They said that they can not say what the out come will be as it gets up in other workers hands (adoption part of C.A.S)
Although she has been with us since 5 weeks old this waiting for the answer is so hard. if the answer comes back as no then she will be removed from my home. We are the only people that this little one knows to her we are her family. She is almost 10 months old. She has seen her bio mom about 25 times since birth although my door has been open to her as we were doing this as a kinship home until she went through the process of gaining things and knowledge and have her back in her care. Poor girl went back to her old ways and now everything is back up in the air.
How do you deal with this ? How do you deal with the unknown. This happens often in foster care and wow it is hard.
Thank you for allowing me to express myself on here as I do not really like to talk to my kids about it I feel that it put fears in them and that is not a pretty site when everyone in the house is on edge .
