Some News we Knew was coming but didn't want to hear...

Well our foster daughter that went home right after Thanksgiving is being adopted by the family her bio mom chose. This is not a surprise to us at all. It is just soooo frustrating why no one would listen to us when we went to court. We tried to tell them that the whole "reunification" was a joke especially when it was taking place at the "identified adoptive parents home". It is just sooo frustrating because she was fine where she was. They totally screwed her up with their accelerated plan to reunify her. She was 12 months when she came to us. She was 23 1/2 months when she left. She was settled with us. We were the only family she ever knew. I am just sooooo pissed. Our lovely court system had 2 similar cases go thru it within a month of eachother...if these cases go thru - what will be next? When will someone truly think about the best interest of these children????

Baggage sent me. She mentioned a post of mine yesterday, and now it's your turn. So hello...

I've been a foster parent for 6 1/2 years, but I do teens for whom going home and adoption have both been ruled out. Feel free to drop by my blog if you like.

I'll be reading yours.

So sorry...this happened to us too. We were promised adoption & they gave her a distant relative she'd never even met after 6 months of love & stability... for the first time in her life! That was 2 years ago and we will always love her. Her pictures remain in our home and she is always a part of our family. Unfortunately she was too young to remember she has another family.
