  • They will ask you general questions to see how well you know your nephews. they will also ask you questions about your mental perspective about having the boys.. They will talk to the boys alone and ask them questions.

  • We have temp custody of a family member's child. The social worker came in and asked us questions, personal information and general info about our family. Who we spend significant time with. Then she walked through our home and took pictures, especially the area the child would be sleeping. She opened and took pics of our fridge and then we had to sign some papers. I hear because ours was a family placement it was a lot lighter than foster parents. GL.
