So for the past couple of months I have been working on getting a specific job that I have wanted...since I heard about it.

Case Manger.

A Case Manager takes care of birthmoms that come to Utah to deliver their babies because of the Utah adoption laws.

A Case Manger does the following:
  • Picks Birthmom up from the airport
  • Takes her to her apartment,
  • Takes her grocery shopping
  • Takes her to her Dr. appointments and any other appointment she may have
  • Entertains her by going to a movie, dinner or something entertaining twice a week
  • Takes her to the hospital for delivery
  • Is there for her during Delivery and when requested and Is there for relinquishment
  • takes her back to apartment
  • Is there for emotional support
  • takes her back to the airport to go back home.
  • and helps with anything else the birthmom may need.

I am now officially a Case manager for birthmoms.
I meet my first birthmom on Sunday,

I found your blog because I'm another 101er and I read a lot of 101 blogs. This is an amazing job, I'm so glad that the position exists in the first place as here in the UK we tend to hear more about the draconian laws than the good stuff that helps women in difficult situations.

I think you'll be great at it!
