my sister has been a licensed foster parent for many years now. She just had a little boy about 9 months ago. she's up for relicensing but since she is not vaccinating her son-she found out she can no longer be licensed. She also just got a call about adopting a little girl but found out they won't be allowed to unless they vaccinate their biological son. He would have to have ALL the vaccinations RECOMMENDED by the state. The social worker feels the same way about vaccinations and has looked into getting around it but there's no way....not even a religious exemption for it.
if anyone has gone through this, or has any ideas it would be MUCH appreciated. my sister has always wanted to adopt-she has health issues and was lucky to have one biological child. This is crushing her.
