I just got a call from our worker asking if we'd be interesting in having our home study submitted for a 9 mo baby. I hate how vague the details are ("history of substance abuse, but he was removed for neglect...." Oh, okay. As if every foster case isn't due to substance abuse, child neglect, or child abuse, or some combination (okay, I know there are exceptions to this, don't flame me)).
Of course it has to be Friday so we have the entire weekend to stew. Of course they have to say the baby is Caucasian (when it's clear from other details they gave me that he's probably not, and of the three foster placements I've had, only one has been the race they told us). Race is not an issue for us but it makes me so uneasy when they can't even get that detail correct b/c it makes me wonder just how wrong they are about this "minor medical issue" or how resolved that "developmental delay" really is.
I think I need to be talked down. I'm so excited, but nervous that DH won't want to submit our home study for some reason (like we already have a foster child here and two's our limit), nervous that we will submit our home study and get on the roller coaster of "you've been chosen"/"we made a mistake, you weren't chosen"/"here's this major detail we left out...."
This waiting stuff really doesn't get any easier the more you do it, does it?
