Nothing to Report

People keep asking me how things are going with the Foster Care and Adoption processes. And I'm tired of having to say that they're not -- progressing, that is. In fact, all this time, I've thought we've been waiting for our temporary license to arrive. But, that's not the case. In fact, our temporary social worker hasn't even sent in all our paperwork yet to apply us for the temp. license; something that I just found out this Monday when she emailed me that she still needed a few things, things I had already turned in.

At this point, I don't think anything is going to happen until our actual worker gets back from her maternity leave, which is in a little less than a month now. So that's going on.

In the meantime, I've been applying for jobs as they crop up, because while it seems the possibility of me staying on past my "planned last day worked" (as they call it) is becoming more and more likely; I need to get out of here. I had a half-hour meeting with my supervisor yesterday during which his only answers were, "Well, I don't really know..." No, of course you don't know -- you've made it abundantly clear you have no interest in helping anyone other than yourself, or trying to figure out what's going on with the work that's going to be needed past my LDW.

So, it seems until I get called in for interviews, I'm stuck here, with not much going on.

Sorry to hear work is crappy. I hope that phone starts ringing soon and they realize what they've lost when you leave.

It seems like the foster/adoption system is as slow in the states as it is here in Canada. One girl I know keeps asking when she is getting a case working and at first it was 2 weeks, then 2 months and now its....maybe 6 months?

Crazy. I hope things pick up though.
