It was one of the social workers there, they were calling to see if we would take 2 more! A 2 year old boy and a 1 year old girl, siblings. They were at their mom's house for a visit and she apparently was saying the 2 year old had lots of bruises all over him (isn't that normal for a 2 yr old?) and was trying to blame it on the foster parents. The agency was wondering if we would take the kids if they needed a place to stay tonight and I said yes. What was I thinking?!?!
They said they would call me back and let me know, once Ben got home we both were laughing at the fact that I had said yes and to be honest I was really hoping they would not need to come to our house! As it turns out, they did not need to come and that worked out well since I probably should have said no in the first place. But how do you say no to 2 kids in a possibly abusive situation? Anyway, this was a good dry run for me, I am going to practice saying NO so the next time I get called for something I am really not ready for maybe I will be able to say it!!!
