Hi everyone. Today has been a very special day. Today, I was able to sit down with the woman who was instrumental in creating a forever family for my baby girl H. Her former social worker and I were able to meet for lunch and catch up on life since we’ve last chatted. H.’s social worker, Ms. B, is truly one of the most kind and gentle spirits I have ever met. I am very thankful for her presence in our lives during some pretty amazing times in our lives.
It was awesome to sit down and converse with her. We discussed H., her former foster parents whom we still communicate with, H.’s advancements, the new pregnancy, the baby moving and several other things. Ms. B has a relative fighting cancer. We talked about that. I’d only planned on being there for 30 minutes. An hour and 45 minutes later, I finally left to return to the office. That’s what talking with family is like.
It wasn’t until I got back to the office that I discovered it was Social Worker month and School Social Worker week. How ironic was the timing! And if that wasn’t enough, she brought H. the cutest little spring clothes. I love her!
I will never be able to thank Ms. B for all that she has done to assist in our journey. Our family wouldn’t be complete without our H. She is such an important and integral member in our family. I wouldn’t know what to do if she wasn’t.
Happy Social Worker’s Month to all the social workers out there. Thank you for all you do.
