Got some snail mail here...

Would you open a letter from the "Social Empowerment Center"?

I normally wouldn't, but I thought it might have something to do with my involvement as a foster parent.

It did.

I am formally invited to voice my opinion and observances at a meeting today at 2:00 regarding the placement of my foster son.

That's nice.

They'll piss on my opinions, but I'll be there with bells on.

Heh...at first, I read your statement as "I'll be there with BALLS on."

Hey, if the balls fit, Key...!

Good luck key! I know we've discussed this before, but my grandson is still in foster care and i so desperately would like to see him. We live on opposite sides of the country so it is very difficult for me to even get any info on how he is doing.

David, I thought about re-editing the post to put the word "balls" in there instead. It's probably more suited to me. ; )

Michele - It is such a shame that you are so far away from him. Caseworkers usually make every effort to place within the family, only using foster homes as a last resort. It may be a longshot, but it'd be worth a phonecall if you'd be willing to accept him into your home.

If you offer, and long-term placement is needed, they have to consider you.
