    Bette’s Two Home Visits

    Roberta Collier pulled into the driveway of the Porter-Kennard home in West Hollywood. She stood outside the car for several minutes observing the neighborhood, the houses, the types of cars parked on the street, the pedestrian traffic, the landscaping, the cleanliness etc. In her line of work, she was super sensitive to the environment. Ever alert to safety hazards, she didn’t find anything apparent in this quaint family community.

    Having done research on the demographics, the area got A+ ratings for diversity, schools, parks, churches, shopping, amenities; a child growing up in these surroundings would be privileged.

    Roberta’s 3:00pm appointment with Bette Porter was the last home visit of the day. Anxious to start heading back to Los Angeles before the rush hour traffic, she stopped dawdling and made her way up the front steps and rang the doorbell.

    The door was answered by a beautiful mocha skinned woman with a brilliant smile. Behind her stood an equally stunning blonde holding a baby girl. The child had the blonde’s features and the darker woman’s hair and skin tone reflecting both their heritages. They made an attractive family, but good looks had no place in Roberta’s world. Her job was to evaluate the suitability of the woman who had petitioned for second parent adoption of the baby; Angelica Marie Kennard-Porter.

    “Good afternoon I’m Roberta Collier from Social Services. I believe you are expecting me?”

    “Yes, of course. Please come in. I’m Bette Porter.” Bette extended her hand to shake the other woman’s. Stepping aside she introduced her family. “This is my wife Tina Kennard and our daughter Angelica.”

    Tina too extended her hand to shake, then held up the baby so the woman could see her. Roberta smiled politely but didn’t make any effort to engage the child.

    “Would you care for something to drink?” Bette offered.

    “No thank you. I’d like to get right to it, if you don’t mind.”

    “Of course. Where do we start?”

    “A tour of the home would be appropriate.” Roberta said leading the way into the living room, not bothering to wait for the homeowners to show her around.

    Bette and Tina gave each other a look that said they weren’t getting good vibes. Tina excused herself and took Angie to the kitchen. There was no point in the three of them following the woman through the house.

    1. Hi! Thank you for the chapter!

      But i must say that even if i don’t like character Roberta both in the TLW and in your story ironically that the only real obstacle for Bette in TLW on her way for adopting Angelica was only Bette herself when she as trying to go to court and than to kidnap Angelica.

    2. Hey Bat, it took awhile to write this chapter, but wow it was worth the waiting!!!!

      I never liked or cared for Roberta and i think you did a excellent job to show her true colors.

      And how Bette told her of about what she finds important to show and learn Angie, well done. The same for Tina, so happy to read how she supported Bette and came up for her!!!!

      Looks like Helena is loosing it, she gets what she deserves, finally!!!

      Looking forward to the next chapter!!!

    3. Another great chapter, I am so glad that Tina told Roberta what was what. People with those types of biases should not be in the social work business. And I think she is lucky it was Melvin and not Peggy that heard the conversation she was having with Bette. Can’t wait for the next chapter. PPS

    4. Hello Bat, thanks for another wonderful chapter. Oh my, that Roberta character was a super bitch on the show and you let her show that continuation, didn’t like her then and even less this time. So happy you let Bette and Tina give her what for as well as Melvin chiming in with his summation of her and that nasty attitude. She doesn’t know this but, if Peggy P had added her two cents worth she might be looking for another job, and it hasn’t been determined that Peggy won’t intervene, she has a long reach and knows all kinds of people. I really liked that Tina gave her a piece of her mind as well without tearing her apart. She is really in the wrong profession with her biases and attitude, God bless those that don’t have as much help as our girls and that have to put up with that woman. There are people like her all over the Social Services environment. Again, thanks for a great chapter. Thanks for posting. Have a great week.
