CPS investigation ON ME!!!!!!!!!!

I am so upset. I am in tears REALLY. I am being investigated for something I documented, told the SW, sent the documentation to the worker and took the child to the doctor.
I am quitting foster care. Once the adoption is final I am done. This is bullshit (sorry but it is) They treat us like crap for no reason. I covered my butt I did EVERYthing I was supposed to do and still this. Well I can see why foster parent retention is a problem

This saddens me so much to read. I am so sorry for what you are going through! You are trying to make a positive difference in the lives of these children and are being treated as an abuser? No wonder so many of these children are bounced from home to home! Praying your adoption finalization comes quickly.

Terrible!

I used to think that the stories you'd hear about the allegations, the problems were overhyped, that they couldn't possibly happen without reason. After a year, I'm not nearly that naive.

I am so sorry.

We are done with foster care just as soon as our daughter's adoption is finalized.

Done. Finito. No more.

Oh my goodness how terribly unfair! This is pure crazyness!!

Sorry you are having to go through that. Hope everything works out okay. Having an investigation is NOT the same as being substantiated - so don't take it personally (as if it's possible not to!). (Been there, done that!)
My advice is to connect with other foster parents, as even your friends at the agency can't be too supportive until the process is finished.

That stinks!!! I am sure it will turn out just fine, they probably just have to jump through hoops. Still it doesn't seem right, that you are doing such a wonderful unselfish thing and to be treated that way!!

I'm sorry too. I was looking forward to hearing about your next placement journey.

Thank you all for the kind words. I do appreciate them. I am almost 100% sure with this novel of documentation I have and the doctors support that once the supervisor is done here tomorrow she will say thank you and that the case will be closed.
I think it is the fact one was opened at all is BS. They are acting like it is a new discovery when it was reported THE DAY it happened.
Frustrating that is all it is. My heightened emotions I am sure do not help at all either.
