Three New Blogs

Here are three new blogs to consider adding to your every growing list of foster-care blogs.

Two newish blogs by social workers:

The Mellenial Social Worker

Blue Jean Social Work

One blog by a social worker/foster mother, Postcards from Insanity. This one is doing what I did with Ann's Story. She is going back through old journals and notes and reconstructing a story from years past. I strongly recommend that you start reading this one at the beginning. The blog comes with a warning,
"If you are here looking for a touchy feely, the world is sunshine and roses blog about how wonderful foster care is....STOP, turn around and back away slowly. Don't make any sudden moves, you don't want to startle the children. My life is like a car wreck- you don't want to look but you just can't help yourself! I am blunt, cynical and sarcastic- all necessary character traits for the successful navigation through the insane world of foster parenting. I call it like I see it with no regard for who gets their granny panties in a bunch. You have been warned ;)"

These blogs will be added to the feed box.

Comments will be open for a little while, then I will be shutting them off. The blog will stay, but I do not want either to moderate comments or leave the blog available to spammers.
