Adopted a baby through Kinship Center four years ago. The Social Workers involved told me the child was fine, despite the child's small head circumference and birth mother's history of drug abuse. Turns out, the child has Fetal Alcohol Syndrome and needs all kinds of help. She will probably be dependent on me her whole life. She's in kindergarten and already suspended from school due to behavioral issues. I'm told her behavior will worsen as she ages. Called Kinship months ago for services and was told there was a waitlist of TWENTY children. Called PACT for support several times and never received a return phone call.

Kinship and DSES, train your social workers to recognize the signs of a drug/alcohol exposed child so the child is matched with an appropriate family. Adoptive parents should know exactly what they are getting themselves in to, and they should not have to be smarter than their social workers and even the pediatrician. Have sufficient staff so that when a parent needs help, they are not placed on a wait list. I am getting professional help elsewhere for my daughter, but am completely overwhelmed. Not happy!
