Ok, I know that there is at least one FP one here (Kristen) that has some kind of personal direct contact with the bio parents.
But, I have a few questions for other that may not have known the bios before placement.
Anyway, to my point.
Lil J has not seen his mother in almost 3 months. YOu can take this whichever way you want. His first visit is scheduled for this Friday.
Since the mother does not have any transportation, Lil J's case worker has to pick her up from the train and transport her to the local CPS office. This office happens to be less than 1/2 mile from my house.
So - since the bio can not know where I live (my choice at this point), we either have the option of having his case worker drop his mother at the office, come back to my house and pick up LIl J - OR - I can meet them there. If I meet them there, that means that I will meet his mother.
I told his case worker that I will leave the choice up to his mother. If she would like to meet me, then I can drop him off. If she does not, then they can pick him up.
If you did not know the bio parents before placement, have you met them either during visitation, etc.
Second question -
THis is my first placement. I thought it would be a nice gesture to print out any photos that I have taken in the past 2+ months. My husband says I should not waste my time. To me, I think it shows how much I care for him.
