THINGS TO ASK ABOUT A POSSIBLE PLACEMENT:

AGE OF CHILD?
RACE OF CHILD?
WHY IS THE CHILD IN STATE CUSTODY?
WHEN DID THE CHILD COME INTO CUSTODY?
HAS THE CHILD BEEN IN STATE CUSTODY BEFORE?
HEALTH PROBLEMS WITH CHILD?
PHYSICAL PROBLEMS WITH CHILD?
MENTAL PROBLEMS WITH CHILD?
ANY AGGRESSIVE BEHAVIORS?
HOW LONG TO YOU THINK CHILD MIGHT BE IN STATE CUSTODY?
WAS CHILD PHYSICALLY ABUSED?
WAS CHILD SEXUALLY ABUSED?
HOW DOES CHILD ACT WITH OTHER CHILDREN?
IS THE CHILD ON ANY MEDICATIONS?
DOES THIS CHILD HAVE ANY SPECIAL NEEDS?
WHAT SIZE DOES THE CHILD WEAR?
DOES THE CHILD REQUIRE ANY SPECIAL FOODS?
DOES THE CHILD HAVE AN ALLERGIES?
DOES THE CHILD HAVE ANY CONTAGIOUS DISEASE?


SOMETIMES TO GET AN EXACT ANSWER FROM THE CASEWORKER YOU MIGHT HAVE TO ASK THE SAME QUESTION BUT SAY IT A DIFFERENT WAY. SOME OF THE QUESTIONS MAY SEEM PETTY, BUT IF YOU DO NOT ASK THEM, THEY WILL NOT TELL YOU!!!!
