I was quite surprised when I got home last night to find a letter from the foster care agency requesting that I return my foster care license immediately in the provided envelope. The supervisor is requiring it, not the licenser.
I felt almost a little insulted. I know that I was previously only licensed for one child, but is it an automatic that once I adopt my license is revoked??? I mean, I wasn’t planning to foster right now, but what about Moose? What if he goes back into care? What if one of M’s siblings goes into care? Wouldn’t I at least be able to have the option to consider it? And what about providing respite, is that not allowed either?
Maybe I’m overreacting and have no reason to feel insulted. I agree that my house is too small for a family of more than two. I wouldn’t take a placement right now anyway, for many reasons. I would only consider taking Moose, as I have a rapport with his whole family.
This is just weird.
