“Time for Paperwork Again”


Description from Mommykat Bubbly Chick: so it is paperwork again. Now the DHS people want every outing documented with date, time logged, place went, who the child interacted with, why ( what they purchased, picked, ect) times three! One log for each child.... I do a lot of things with the children,this feels like a punishment...and it is a bit insulting... who cut dans hair, how long he waited for his turn, how much was actually 'Dans time'
Sigh.... the changes are always difficult for me. Now they come out to the house every 28 days, (times 2) and 4 to 6 visits a month from our worker (course i do Love her!!!!!) and the visit for the other child every third month.... hard to keep a house of 7 plus 2 dogs looking DHS ready!

    I’m glad your venting helped! You have every reason to be frustrated. I can’t imagine having to be ready for a drop in visit at any time, and we’re only a family of 4! God’s richest blessings to you for all you do!

    Lorrie, this is a beautiful pick !!!
    I am so sorry my dear friend that you have to go through so much…. I can see them being thorough if you were new at this…. but I would think by now you would have proven yourself as “worthy” so to speak…. and they would let up a bit…. I can understand your frustration…. hang in there my dear…. you are so amazing to put up with it all and to give a wonderful home to those great children !!!!!!

    I love this pick, Lorrie! I hope you create a design from it, that is, if you ever have time…I can’t believe those people put you through so much just because you’re a wonderful, loving, caring person who gives those children the blessing of being with you! Just remember how much joy you have given to ALL your children, be strong in the love given and returned, and know just how very special you are! :D
    Chicky hugs!
