She calls me almost every day. She seems to be doing pretty good. She cries a lot about how she misses me and she loves me and she wants to come home. She is obeying the rules for the most part and is getting along with the family. SHe cursed out the camp counselor, got grounded and suspended for three days and went back today. SHe called me on Monday and she was mad and acting like the difficult child that had her placed in foster care. She was raging, why did you put me here, you should hever have put me here, I am never going to be able to come home. I was able to calm her down and get her to realize that it really wasn't me putting her there it was her hitting me and her being abusive at home that had her placed in a temporary home until she can prove she can get it under control. It wasn't a pleasant conversation but she didn't manipulate me either. I do miss her, but I like going home a lot more. Sounds awful to even say, but I can't help but feel it, I am safe from being hit and have things hitting me in the back of my head or shoulders. I hope she can get some of this stuff under control. We have our first home visit tomorrow. I have to go home and clean or she may never get to come home. house is really bad. My iron is really low, and now I am getting b12 injections and it's super, super humid and hot here in illinois. I am zapped by the time I get to the car. I am excited to see her, and I don't know why but I am making her favorite meal, chicken, chilli, cheese nachos. I hope it goes okay, it will be strange with the caseworker sitting right along there with us in the house but I am glad they are coming to our house so she can see her dog and cat.
