babies wahh

Oh, foster care, how you toy with my emotions

I get a call from my favorite CPS caseworker. Adoptive placement, two boys, ages 1 and 2.

I’m fantasizing about a minivan and getting way ahead of myself as she talks, and then I ask about TPR and she transfers me to the boys’ caseworker.

Case goal is still reunification. Which is fine, it’s just not TPR…which is what my husband will require to purchase a minivan before fetus baby gets here. Wahh.

There really is no way to talk about adoption from foster care without sounding anti-reunification. My desire to adopt is not a desire to breakup families, I promise.
