Not a post for those easily offended

Ok, again, sorry for not being a more active poster.

Fair warning to those of you that are offended by 4 letter words.

I am flat fed the fuck up with 90% of the people "working" in the adoption/foster industry.

They are the most unprofessional, discourteous bunch of fucktards I have ever had the pleasure of working with.

A) My cat is smarter than most of these people
B) Is it so fucking hard to call someone back?
C) What is the point of having a phone if you never answer it or return voicemails.
D) Same as above for e-mail.

I just don't get what is so damn complicated about this. EACH and EVERY one of these dipshits we have worked with could screw up a wet dream. I don't think we have ever gotten a phone call returned.

Sorry for the very colorful rant, but I am quite pissed off at the moment. Spent a week chasing after dumbfuck social workers in Florida, jumping through their hoops because they were eager to work with us, only to have to almost literally pin them down for them to tell us we weren't selected. My money is that we weren't even in the running, they just aren't capable of being honest. That is a another theme that seems to keep occuring in this. Fucking lies. Just grow a pair and be honest, people will respect you a lot more, even if you aren't telling them what they want to hear.

Ok, I will end my rant now. I will post more about the bullshit an lies they put us through as they occur.

And, if you are wondering, I am not bitter about not being chosen for the one child. It's not that at all. Just be upfront and stop the bullshit.


  1. I don't think your situation is unique. But I do think it's bullshit. Sorry dude.

  2. I second ME. When dealing with the foster care system expect BS, and hope for miracles!

  3. Ohh, I'm so sorry. Absolutely ridiculous.

  4. I'd like to say that it gets better...but it is red tape no matter how you look at it. Let's just say that due to some of the crazy doings (or un-doings) of our agency, it took 19 months to finalize our daughter's adoption. And she was VOLUNTARILY placed with us...not even through the foster system. Yes, there were unique issues, and our son's finalization only took 4 months. But there was still a lot of BS along the way. HOWEVER, in the end we got our kids.

    I totally understand why you're mad and you have every right to be. I hope that things improve for you.

  5. Yep, sucks, would have quit years ago, cept they won't terminate the parental rights of kids we've now had for four years. The new caseworker, now on #4, was surprised that we'd adopt them if given the chance. Nope, just loving that $20/day....because I'm just that financially stupid.
