And the hits just keep on coming......

So, we inquired about a child in NC. They stated "he has some delays" but is in preschool, etc.

The reality we found out was that it was a 3 year old that was not mobile, non verbal and will need care for the rest of his life.

What the fuck is wrong with these people? I can't imagine they are really this stupid. It's more used car salesmen tactics. Makes me more and more sick the more and more I deal with these people.

So, that's 2 states sofar that couldn't find their ass with both hands and a map. Let's hope the other 48 are at least a little better.


  1. That is not alright. I can't believe the nerve of these people. I get so steamed up when I read your posts. grrr.

  2. We can add Georgia to the list as well now.

  3. How frustrating for you 2 to have to go through all of this! I hope that somebody SOMEWHERE reads both your post and your wife's and realizes what is going on and can change SOMETHING.
    Enjoy your day,

  4. During our active fostering days we would get deaf kids who had no indication on any paperwork, although been in care for years, that they were deaf. My friend had the best. Double amputee, "oh didn't we mention that?" Our nightmare scenario was a 10 year old girl who the worker had known for years, had "very few issues" and was only in care because her parents couldn't care for her, but they would never terminate the rights. Turns out the girl was 14 (just had a birthday, was the excuse) deaf, just released from the psych ward, without meds and medicaid wouldn't pay for anymore that month, bisexual predator.

    They will say anything to get a bed for the kid, but I know there are people who take all sorts, if they were just upfront with us it would be easier on them and better for the kids.
