Update: I have been licensed for a week now! I have received a total of 4 calls….. 2 yr old girl, (age) girl, 4 yr old Native American girl and a 2 yr old boy! Obviously, no confirmation calls on these little ones. I had to deal with CPS this week at work and took the opportunity to ask a few questions. Apparently, CPS “…can not confirm or deny that statement” of whether children are sleeping in the offices. The CPS workers were surprised that I hadn’t yet received a placement. They then started to encourage me to do therapeutic care and/or teenagers. You guys know how I feel about the teenager situation. YES, I definitely could do therapeutic cases/special needs/medically fragile …etc. I am a nurse and I love my career…I just am not ready for that extra layer in taking on this new role. My licensing agent has called also and is surprised that I still haven’t had a placement.
How do I feel about it? I’m good.
I am ready (as I can be) for that time when it comes. I’m keeping my reference sheet of questions close by for when they do call. I am keeping the little and big children in my prayers that even amongst the confusion..His love & strength will shine in individuals like me and you…that the Comforter will continue to embrace and protect them.
