My first call I went on was at a school the little boy was the same age as my youngest and I could see my sons face in this young mans face. The scared deer in the head light look. Every child we spoke to I could identify one of my children with every dirty home was where my child had came from. After two weeks with CPS I resigned my position with them.
Although i have the highest respect for these amazing people on the front lines this job is definitely not for me. So February 1st I will be working for Catholic Charities as foster home developer for their refugee program. I now will be able to do all of the things I love to do and continue to work with families.
