I received a call about a placement for a 7 year old boy today, being removed from his second kinship home due to kin's "non-compliance". Who knows what that could mean? Maybe not getting the child to school or medical appointments. My forever boys came from a kinship placement, but were being removed due to more abuse/neglect occurring within the kinship home. I was told he had some "aggression" issues and they were looking into getting counseling set up for him. He is in another county but the county has ok'd a move to our local school if necessary. He has no visits currently as birthparent is incarcerated. I agreed to the placement and he was to arrive at 3:30. At 4:30 I got a call that they could no locate the child or kinship caregiver. At 5:30 they still had not been located, DHS will call if they turn up this weekend otherwise I should here from the agency on Monday.
R1 (Respite placement- 8yo boy) arrived for another weekend at 6:30. His foster mom called me around 7 to tell me she had given my number to birthmom and she would be calling??!! Um maybe you should have checked with me first before giving out my number? Of course no call ever came anyway. I worked on getting our Saturday schedule together and printed to try and reduce electronic time.
