Fos-Adopt in CA -- Lots of Waiting
My husband and I are going through the foster-adoption process. Our homestudy is complete and approved and we have been reviewing the child availables with our social worker and submitting our home study for consideration. However, we are finding that the social workers representing the children are not always timely in getting back to our social worker, and some never respond. Our adoption agency warned us that this may happen as a result of funding reductions in the counties within California and the resulting over-worked social workers. Is anyone else struggling, or has struggled, with this situation?
We are hopeful that the match to our child will happen sooner rather than later! As we are not exactly sure what age, gender, etc of child we are destined to bring into our home, it is hard to prepare fully at this stage. Any recommendations for things that can be done to help with the waiting?
