Chapter 4

Busy Calendars

  • We have weekly visits with the Foster Care Agency Social Worker and a monthly home inspection.
  • We have weekly visits with the therapist.
  • We had weekly visits with a tutor.
  • We have monthly visits with the County Social Worker (which may be different for each child).
  • We have an Annual Certification Inspection.

There might be school appointments for Individual Education Plans (I.E.P.), Parent/Teacher Conferences, meetings on discipline problems, etc.

It is encouraged the children have a weekly visit with their birth family. We have met at a park or mutual meeting place and left them with approved supervision for a specific time while we went shopping or got a cup of coffee so they could have as much privacy as possible. There are also doctor and dental appointments.

Every six months there is a Court appearance scheduled to review their case. This is an opportunity for them to approach the bench and ask questions or speak to the judge. Their personal empowerment is always encouraged.

As you can see, flexibility is a major requirement.
