I really hate DCF, but they have to be involved in this....my ex-husband has agreed to give up his rights and DH is trying to adopt, so DCF has to come over to investigate everything and interview everyone. I don't forsee a problem, but DH & I both despise DCF so much, because of stuff they have done to us in the past....my son's got into my lipstick (the kind that doesn't wear off) and I couldn't wash it out of their blonde hair with soap and water, I told their school this, and they called DCF because they couldn't get it off w/ soap & water, so it must be blood.....blood would have come off.....DCF made us go to the Dr. w/ them and watched while the doctor took an alcohol wipe and got off the lipstick, confirmed it was lipstick, and said, no neglect, or abuse was involved.......how was I supposed to know to use alcohol?????.....DCF STILL opened a neglect case and was in our life for a year, it was horrible. Anyway, this time I am hoping it is going to be a positive experience, but am still nervous, because my middle child (the one DH is trying to adopt) has a black eye from wrestling with his brother, so I am afraid they will say we hit him or something, I mean both kids tell the same story, and the way my oldest tells it, while looking away from you, you can TELL he did it, but these people don't want to believe things like that, so it worries me. I'm not gonna try to cover it up with makeup or anything though, because then it would look like were hiding something, and we have nothing to hide. Yea, I know I'm rambling, but it is 1 pm and they will be here in 3 hours, it is getting nerve wracking.....we want to adopt after we have our 6th child....I hope it isn't as crazy as this....I dunno though...I hear it can be worse....Please keep us in your thoughs, thanx.
I am sorry to hear about the way that DCF has done you in the past. Maybe this expirence with them will go well and maybe it can change your opinion of them. How did things go with them?? Please update us!
OMG! I can't believe I haven't posted anything since this! I could have sworn I did! Anyway, it went AWESOME! The lady that came over told us she hates DCF, lol. She technically works for the Probate Court, but has all rights of DCF, lol. Anyway, she was so nice, and everything went great! Our court date is set for Feb. 15. However, this is just for bio-father to give up rights, not for the adoption. It wasn't included together, because my ex paid to give up his rights, and obviously didn't pay the extra amount to do the adoption at the same time. We didn't know this till we got the date set, so we are gonna head down to the probate court tomorrow and see if it can still be added on to do it all on the same date, if not, that's ok, it is one step closer!! YAY!!
