Well our twins left tonight after finding out that the whole "respite thing" was a misunderstanding. Our foster worker let me know in no uncertain terms (and a very loud voice I must say) that she in no way implied that this respite was for us to determine if we wanted to take the twins as a placement...WHY IN THE WORLD WOULD SHE SUGGEST WE DO THE RESPITE THEN???? There was already plans for another foster mom to do the respite and that was cancelled when our worker said she wanted us to do it...we would have NEVER done the respite if not for the reason of getting the twins as a placement, why would we put ourselves thru that??
The foster parents that had them has been talked into keeping them for a while with a lot of respite help. So obviously it's better for these wee ones to be tossed from respite home to respite home and living in a home where they are not wanted then to be placed with us :-(
OK rant over but I am so so sad tonight that the twins will not be a part of our family. After just one night we were all in love with them.
Now what? I'm ready to be done with all of this...I guess we'll see what the next few days brings to light...
