Note to self

Even if the foster parent that calls you to do some respite care for them speaks perfect English - double check to make sure the kid they're dropping off at your house does too.

I swear we are living mirror image lives (the same but in reverse). Our foster son's new home is Spanish speaking, only their son speaks English and translates for his parents. Our foster son doesn't know a word of Spanish. I guess if I can't keep him I can't complain about who they get to take him?

As the days have progressed I have been able to determine she completely understands English. It just isn't her language of choice. However, when she really wants to try, she will communicate in English. Otherwise, she's so shy, she hardly talks at all.

Things have been better today. She doesn't seem as scared and she is talking (in English) more. Tho, Spanish is still obviously her primary language.
