Said we can't buy DSD nice clothes anymore!
DSD is 4. When we go to visits, if DSD's clothes get dirty or wet, or if she has an accident, we change her into clothes from our house. Most of the clothes are GAP, Old Navy, Children's Place, etc.
Foster mom sent social worker an email today that we can't buy DSD 'name brand' clothes anymore because it makes the other children in the foster home 'feel bad' that DSD has nicer clothes than them. WTF.
It wouldn't bother me so much except I don't see why we have to go spend extra to go buy her WALMART clothes, when we already have a FULL wardrobe for her at our house. And no, we don't spend a huge fortune on DSD's clothes either, it's all bought with store credit at consignment, or yard sale cheapies, or at huge giveaways that are in the area.
We don't keep the clothes she wore to the visit, we send that back to the foster home. And we never get the clothes we provide back, either.
Idk, guess I just needed to vent...
We don't have custody of DSS or DSD right now. Both were taken from biomom due to gross neglect, and we can't get full custody until all the accusations biomom made against us are cleared. (Saying that DH abused her, is harassing her, etc; and that I 'hate' her kids and won't treat them right.)
DSS is being placed with us next month, and DSD soon after. We're transitioning with DSS right now so he can live with us full time, they won't let us do both the kids at once. We didn't get to pick which child comes home first.
