Cherub Mamma, hope all is well. I am getting emails from CPS asking that you not continue to check in on the status of the investigation. Licensing can take up to 30 days or longer (should the supervisor extend that time) to complete an investigation. I know you're anxious but I am asking that you wait until our agency contacts you with the results. Licensing is not allowed to give you any details or status updates on their investigations. Please direct any questions you may have to us. Thanks.Oh my!!! Now I'm in more "trouble" for simply trying to find out how much trouble I'm already in. What a crock of shit! I sent TWO lousy emails to the investigator. I wasn't pushy. I wasn't demanding squat. I simply didn't want to come across as someone that is just going to sit back and let them walk all over me. I want to show that I am willing to cooperate. I want to show that I have a vested interest in getting this mess over with. But apparently that's not how CPS works.
My agency director literally said, "You're acting like a parent. But CPS isn't used to that. Foster parents don't typically try and find anything out about their investigations." She went on to say, "CPS isn't concerned about the welfare of the children." She is in agreement with me that this situation is all shades of wrong. However, she is fearful that perhaps CPS might think that my licensing agency is telling me to check in. Or that because I'm checking in CPS might think more unfavorably of me. That way of thinking is completely foreign to me but I have to comply.
So I guess I now have to sit back (even more) and shut up (even more).
For what it's worth, (TODAY) I'm considering not taking the children back should my name be cleared. I'm so incredibly mad at The System it's not funny. I am scared to put myself so close to the fire again. I'll probably change my mind on the subject every 30 minutes until I actually hear the verdict. But since I'm being honest about how I'm responding to all this Hell, I figured I'd let you in on my thought process today.
