I'm Expecting. . .

the phone to ring very soon. Call me crazy, but I called to put my name on "the list" again.

I found out the intake worker for our agency has left, so now we have to break in another one. That is okay. The last one tried to make everyone think that you were her favorite family, so she was basically always lying or manipulating you.

Lying and manipulation in the foster care system? I know - a shocker.

Really, she is sick. She would call you with a baby or child and act like she had done you a favor and given you something that many would kill for, but out of her love for you and only you, she has bypassed the other deserving souls on "the list" to give you this new prized possession.

When I called today and spoke to Miss A who is filling in until someone is hired, it was quite refreshing. She sounded genuinely happy to speak to me, but did not make fake professions of love. It was nice for a change.

She did say that "the board" was not filled, meaning there are not many homes available to take children now, so it shouldn't be long before we are called. I'll keep you posted.

Tomorrow Neil and I are going in for some training, but the yearly requirements really are a post in themselves so I will leave that for another day.


I waited patiently for the Lord
He inclined to me and heard my cry.
Psalm 40:1

Hi Susan,

And what were you doing up at 2 in the morning to post this? Congratulations. I hope it works out without all the drama this time. Maybe the new worker will be a breath of fresh air.

You caught me. Guess I shouldn't post that late - or early - since I noticed a couple of glaring typos! I was actually getting in a few more late nights before we get a little one again.

What I should be doing in readjusting my sleep schedule, but I like to do things the hard way. :-)
