Some foster parents have 6 foster children (that's the limit), and I seriously don't know how they do it. Each child has their own case worker, plus whatever organizations/agencies are assigned to the child's case. Then you've got to think about how some children have specific medical or psychological needs. I know biological parents have to deal with some of the same things, but foster parents almost have an extra "job" just communicating with all of the foster care workers and everything else related to the system. The first week, I spent entirely too much time on the phone because people kept telling me I needed to call someone else, and then that person told me to call another person, and so forth. Talk about frustrating. But that's when I called it quits and just called the baby's case worker to take care of it. :)
All things considering, we've had a pretty good experience so far. Sure, there have been frustrations, both with the parenting and with the foster care system, but I think Logan and I can honestly say at this point that we're glad we're doing this. Hopefully that won't change any time soon!
