"It's probably not going to make sense to set you up at a school here since you won't be here too long, but you might wind up changing schools, depending on where they find you foster parents."

"Okay. How come kids get foster parents instead of getting adopted?"

Permalink

"They can get adopted too, but usually unless they're babies they don't get adopted by people they don't know, like by having been fostered."

Permalink

"Are you hoping to be adopted?"

Permalink

Shrug. 

"I don't know how foster parents and adoptive parents compare to my parents and my guardians."

Permalink

"It's probably all to do with the individual people either way."

"It would be nice to have parents again."

Veronica nods sympathetically.

She finishes her eggs. 

Permalink

"I'll go call your school." She dials.

Permalink

"Thank you." 

The school is shocked but officially apologetic and sympathetic when the words "CPS investigation" come out. They can fax Anna-Charlotte's homework if Veronica has access to a fax machine. 

Permalink

Veronica does not have access to a fax machine because she is not a government institution. She will find out if the library offers this service and get back to them.

Permalink

The school will hold her assignments in a folder until then. 

Permalink

Veronica calls the library. The library doesn't have a fax machine available to the public. She calls the school back and asks if they can mail things.

Permalink

The school can mail things!

Permalink

She gives them her address and updates Anna-Charlotte on the situation.

Permalink

"Apparently people still fax! I had a fax machine once but it was more than ten years ago."

Permalink

"That's two years before I was born."

Permalink

"Yup. The church might have had one once, but I'm not sure, I've only been the thaumaturge for about five years."

Permalink

"Like the pastor, for Thaumatologists."

Permalink

"I'm a thaumaturge, but yes."
