*We are looking to adopt an older child, whether straight adoption or foster to adopt.*
Our homestudy is just about complete, though we can already have foster
kids in our home. We have inquired on some kids, and have a few case
workers waiting for our home study.
There is one child (well, almost teen) we inquired on that we think would be a good match. She is at the top of my husband's list as she and him share similar interests (which he feels would help them bond better). I know from a previous child inquiry not to fall in love with a photo listing, lol.
Anyway, on Friday I'm supposed to talk to her case worker on the phone. She can tell me more about her, and I can ask questions. I know I won't be able to find out everything about her, but I should be able to find out as much as a foster parent (from what I've been told). What are some good questions to ask?
I'm nervous and excited. Her case worker already seems to have taken a liking to us, and I know she gets less inquiries than others we've looked at because she'll be a teen in just a few months. I just want to know from the get go if she isn't a good match for our family.
