My neighbor/babysitter growing up has an adult son that cannot get his life straight. CPS has been involved on multiple occasions, but his child has never been removed from the home. Apparently he and his wife are losing their home and he has threatened suicide. He told his parents he would be dropping his boy off at their house before he does this.
This threat has been going on for atleast 20 years. I remember my Dad talking a gun out of his hand when I was a child. Most likely, nothing is gong to come of this crazy awful situation, however we would be willing to take care of the little boy while he and his wife get things straight. His parents are in their 70's and not in good health. If CPS gets involved and the parents/grandparents want him with us, is there a way we can be the ones to take care of him?
My DH and I are already licensed foster parents that never had an intention to foster. Our agency requires everyone to go through the same process regardless of which program you intend to use.
I know this is a question for our social worker, but I wanted to see if anyone else had fostered for someone that was already close to their family?
