Title: Child placement...
Post by: Sunshine1 on Jul 05, 2005, 08:39:12 PM
Has anyone or has anyone known someone that has had a niece, nephew, or a cousin placed with them through social services?

We are curently in the loop with grandparents to have a child placed with us permanently due to the parents not abiding by court orders or they just plain can't raise the child.

I was just looking for some tips on how to better my home and get it ready for an inspection...

Anyone have some ideas?  I'll take it!!

Thanks!!  :)

My parents had my nephew in there custody since he was a baby. The custody was not removed from the parents, they put him there. Last year they adopted him because its obvious his parents are never going to even try and get him back. They had to have a home study done for that.

I suggest you just make sure your home is clean and safe. Make sure chemicals are out of reach and electrical cords are tucked away. The child hopefully has a place set up to keep his/her things and sleep that looks inviting and comfortable?

Good luck!
