I thought I would share with you what I go through in order to just take our foster kids 4 hours away from our home on a vacation even though we never left the state.
According to our agency if we are going away, even for the weekend, I had to fill out a sheet the agency provided listing the address of where we were staying and had to sign my name on the paper. THEN they turned around AND HANDED THE BIO PARENT THE PAPER WITH ALL THIS INFORMATION ON IT for them to sign to approved us going away for the weekend.
You can see why the thought of actually taking the kids out of state sounds like it could be VERY complicated to me if I had to do all of that just to drive 4 hours from my house with them.
So, I was wondering, what do YOU have to do in order to go away for the weekend and/or go out of state???
