I'll keep on trying.We had photos taken of the kids and put them in frames to give to their mother for Christmas at their last visit. The baby turned two a few days ago and will start speech therapy next week if "mom" will sign the paperwork. The kids will have a visit with her today if she shows up......(that no good rotten women was seen with a newborn child while at court, I may see her today, if she shows up) After the kid's first evaluation we were instructed to get the youngest two into preschool as soon as they would take them. We gave our two week notice to the day care provider for the baby and she started preschool monday. Her speech "class" will be at the same school. So, so far so good, hey we're doing things as we were instructed. Monday I got a call to inform me that they (HHS) are not going to pay the preschool as they said they would and I need to workout payment with them (the preschool). The past due balance is $3586.40. The preschool will cost $400.00 dollars a month more than the "reimbursement". So I have a choice, I could not close my shop 2 hours early everyday to pick up the kids, stop fostering and I could pay MY CHILD'S mortage or I can keep fostering. What would you choose? Really if you had that option what would you rather do? At times fostering the kids can be tough (I'm ok with that) but dealing with the system and the "parents", well I think I may have had my fill of them.Yes I know, now it's the me me me I I I crap from me but doing this could be gratifing insted of frustrating and it's starting to damage my relationship with my wife.
