Note: This person is slightly confused.

The agency, bless its bureaucratic heart, can get so lost in the details. Consider: We took mandatory classes, underwent criminal-background checks, provided references from friends and family, and filled out stacks of paperwork.

Yet DCF still had a few questions before giving final approval. Only you don't deal with DCF directly. The agency has contracts with private agencies through a network called Community Based Care. They're in charge of adoptions and foster placements.
