The other side of the house--and a job interview

TOMORROW I MOVE INTO PLACEMENT at my field practicum. I have been on the CPS side of the child welfare agency ever since I started my internship back in Fall 2009.

I have always been drawn to Foster Care. Now is my opportunity to find out if it's a good fit for me. With just a few short weeks left in field placement, I want to experience as much as I can before I consider a position.

Oh, did I mention I have my first interview on Wednesday?

I was really excited when I got the call last week. I'll "go upstairs" at 4:30 p.m. Wednesday. Please send lots of light!

  1. TJ, that is really exciting!  I hope foster care is all you hope it will be, and have a GREAT interview!

  2. Hey comments are working. Great, so now I can wish you all the best of luck on Wednesday. We will indeed be thinking of you!

  3. Good luck TJ, I will be thinking of you and wishing you the best!
