Ok, so we have an odd situation. Please chime in if you can think of any creative ways to help out!
Hubby and I originally had a private homestudy done because we weren't interested in becoming foster parents. Well we sent out over 300 studies all over the US. All we heard numerous times from other agencies was that they were hesitant to place children with us because we hadn't completed any "foster parent training." Needless to say, hubby and I finally caved an decided to go the route of DFS.
So now we've completed all of our PS-MAPP training and our case workers are beginning our new homestudy. And wouldn't you know it - now we're finally gettiing responses back on our old original homestudy!! Just this week I've been emailed/called by 6 out of state workers!! Now here's the catch - our NEW workers are extremely upset because we had told them that we were no longer looking at out of state children since going with DFS. Well. . .the mom in me kept looking & submitting interests on kids. (shame on me!) But we still had an active original homestudy that we paid major $$ for and I wanted to get my use out of it before it expired. Not to mention there were some little ones that I really wanted to be considered for.
Well one of my requests got back to the NEW caseworkers and she is saying that I openly lied to her and that she's going to reject our application to become foster parents! I'm so upset & feel like I completely sabotaged our chance. Can anyone help?
