Is there such a thing as foster parent who cares too much? I was talking with another foster parent about Lil' mans potential adoptive family. I mentioned how his case worker better not try to pull a fast one like she did last time. The foster parent looked at me as if I had two heads.
Her respond "so long as he gets adopted."
Okay great but look what happened last time he was paired with an adoptive family.
I told the other FP that I had asked Lil' Mans therapist to come up with a transitional plan for his adoption. If its a doctors orders DFCS has to follow it.
She told me I was crossing the line. (WTF??)
Is my job as a foster parent to love this lil guy, feed and cloth him and provide him with a home all the while keeping my mouth shut?
Should I turn a blind eye and act like I don't give a shit just so I wont piss of the case worker?
Sorry aint gonna happen here.
My job is to advocate for him. He has already been dealt a crappy hand, and I want nothing but the best for that kid.
Who cares if I step on a few peoples toes, as long as I do it politely!
