My husband and I have just finished our home study and inquired about a girl in North Carolina. My case worker told me that the girl’s case worker would rather not be bothered with the Interstate Compact paperwork. I was stunned. I have a loving home, ready for a child and I feel that this girl would fit well in our home. After reading (of your work) I understood better. It is a real shame that their a lot of kids out there who won’t get the family that really wants them because of somebody’s willingness to not follow through with what should be done.
