How do you go about finding these hundreds of children needing a family, in the state system?
Is it my responsibility to keep looking and asking for updates on new children available? How often should I send out our family bio, and inquiry? WHAT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF OUR ADOPTION CASE WORKER??
I call DHHS, our regional office, at least once a month. I email our adoption case worker every two weeks. I never speak with her personally (she never returns my call). When I email her, I get one lined responses..."That's to bad"..."Thank you"..."No new updates".
I would imagine that there is a fine line between advocating and driving everyone nuts.
I have been in contact with other case workers in other regions. I know that they have their own families to advocate for.
I guess I am just perplexed. I can't figure out how these children EVER get placed.
