I found out today that I will be (hopefully) beginning a job in August in which I will be working with DCF as a social worker with parents who are adopting children in the DCF system. I will be doing supervised visits with biological parents as well as working with the fostering/adopting parents. (I will be also working with foster parents who are only fostering as biological parents are going to be reunifying.)
I have worked with families in this situation before, but I was always taken out prior to the adoption actually happening, and another SW would step in. I was wondering if you ladies would mind if I lurked and asked the occasional question from time to time being from the other side. I want to be sure that I'm being sensitive to all the parents in the case, and sometimes its difficult to know what to say. I was hoping that I could bring some things to you for input if I were to ever need it.
