humph

I have a meeting today, a meeting that will ultimately decide whether P and I adopt again or foster or do nothing that involves parenting more kids from the system. I am having a really hard time with the fact that one persons opinion means so much especially since that person is not me or my partner or even my children but a social worker. It makes me so frustrated that there are so many kids who needs homes and that sometimes the system makes it so hard for it to happen.

I do need to be sort of cryptic here because I never know who might find this blog and I do not want to say anything that will come back to haunt me but after this meeting today I will have a better sense of where we are at and then I can rant or rave depending on what happens.

I am going to put my energy into my garden until 1pm when P comes back to get me for the meeting.

it really is a messed up system, esp. when the lives of so many children hang in the brink...

I hated that loss of control too. It just stinks. I'll be thinking of you, and I hope it goes exactly as you wish.
