How incredibly frustrating! Our SW sent our homestudy when I first posted about this, not sure the day right now. So, the agency called her Friday to let her know that they needed the date our criminal background check was completed. Mind you they HAD the results but said they needed the date and that wasn't written into the homestudy. So she faxed the info this morning to them and I get home to an email that said they had all the info they needed to submit our homestudy. I'm thinking Yippee Skippee! Then the phone rings and its the agency this little guy is being serviced by and the lady let me know that the case worker cut off his submissions YESTERDAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :argh: Which means that b/c they didn't have the stupid date of our background check and my SW sent it 2 days after they asked for it (not sure what took her that long but I'm sure if she knew to rush she would have) so we don't even get considered for this child. I COULD JUST CUSS!!!!! I so was not sure I was ready to do this and its one thing to not be chosen, but really, we don't even get it submitted now b/c some stupid thing like that.
I was driving in to work this morning and the gospel station I listen to ran an ad about Youth Villages that handles foster families, saying they are in need of foster families. No wonder? I'm 100% fed up with state agencies! No wonder these kids sit forever waiting for them to get it together. Isaiah sat in the system for 3 whole years and this little guy has been there since Oct. of 07. Both instances, rights had been terminated. I'm a woman with 3 degrees and I can't for wrap my mind around a reason that this is justified!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My goodness, nothing else to say I guess. I said all along that if God doesn't think its our time then nothing will come of this and I guess its still true but I just can't see this one making sense.
It's 4:30 in the afternoon and I think I'll just go to bed!!!!
