I met with difficult child's foster carer for the first time last night. He ACTUALLY agrees with me!! I said i felt that our social worker was too young and inexperienced (being a 21 yr old student) and that our case was too complicated for her. he agreed and said there have been things she has said to him and his wife that they have not agreed with. They have been fostering for 19 years now so ,of course, know the system a little better than me... they just went over her head to someone higher every time they thought she said or did something not quite right. They are as glad as i am that we will be getting a new social worker soon. I am sooooooooo happy that someone else can see it . I thought i was just being biased and hard on her. Fingers crossed we get the 'right' person for the job.
