I'm in SB Co and I would have to say that overall it has been a very frustrating situation. We're in a little different situation than you though because we did not enter the process intentionally. We became emergency foster parents to a little one who is not related, but who we knew since birth. We are considered to be the adoptive placement is she cannot go home.

My primary concern is that the system is overburdened and, even though they say that it is not about checking off boxes, it is. And even though they say they act in the best interest of the child, they don't.

You may want to look into a private family foster care agency as well. The only other thing I would recommend is to spend alot of time reading these boards. There's great info to be found here. Best wishes to you!

TPR had already happened but SW still calls them and gives BP updates including info on us. She is giving them visits even though there is no court orders so I have to supervise them and find safe locations to do so since TPR has happend county can't host them. Paperwork that a SW normally does was sent to us to do. Transistion was so stressfull due to daily changes to the schedule. We love little one but no more SB kids.
