Re: Visits w/ bios on holidays for foster kids?
I should also add that our agency would NEVER require us to drive kids to a visit or allow bios to the house for pick up. In fact, I think it might be one of our "rights" to keep our location private.
And as far as respite goes, I think it's just plain wrong to threaten with that. I think it's traumatic for kids who have already been moved so many times and my personal opionion is it should only be used if there are no other options. I've had kiddos for respite and honestly I've seen them go through a bit of grieving, especially if they are not old enough to understand that their foster mom's are coming back.
