Arrogant: (adjective) having or showing feelings of unwarranted importance out of overbearing pride.
You know the conversation is not going to end well when the psychologist starts out by saying that he feels the need to inform you that he is "suspicious of private agencies placing children from foreign countries". This tidbit was followed up by "adoption agencies place children with no idea as to what child is good for what family and then he is left to pick up the pieces". Excuse me, but isn't that what psychologists do? I'm certain that helping people pick up their pieces is what earns him that fat paycheck.
I was then informed he would not perform a one visit evaluation, but would need multiple visits and multiple psychiatric screenings and multiple $$$$$$.
Oh brother! I contemplated telling him all we really needed was someone to verify that we weren't psychotic serial killers, but I refrained. I think God was holding my tongue. Thanks Big Guy!
