The woman was currently balancing a stack of paperwork in her arms, waiting for an elevator. She had a plan to head to talk with the new head of the DMLE, a Mrs. Sarah Grey, to discuss how things will change/work between their departments.

She notices someone already waiting for an elevator and speeds up so she won't have to risk someone not holding the elevator. "Need a hand?" she offers upon seeing the other woman has her arms full.

She smiled faintly, nodding. "Please. I have an unoffical meeting with a Mrs. Sarah Grey concerning about the DMLE-DMAC cooperations. Oh, Seraphina Whiteford, head of the DMAC." She introduced, offering a hand once freed.

She relieves some of the woman's load and firmly shakes her hand, smiling brightly. "Sarah Grey, head of the DMLE. What a coincidence, hm?"

She nodded. "Indeed. Shall we?" As the elevator braked, the two women entered, Sera nimbly blocking anyone else from entering as the doors closed. "So, you're the new head of the DMLE... I was wondering if we could talk about our departments interactions/co-working?"

"Most definitely," she says, nodding. "I'd planned to start setting up such meetings over the next few weeks, but I'm not bummed you beat me to the punch."

She nodded in return. "I bet... I actually am taking the next few weeks off, believe it or not, for my anniversary/birthday. So this is actually a perfect time." Sera remarked, shuffling through the papers in her arms to pull out a neatly-written little lines of questions. "Okay, so, I know that our departments work really close together... How would you want to go about this? As things have been or change them?"

"Well happy early birthday/anniversary to you then." She thinks for a moment. "I would say...what we've got now isn't bad, but that doesn't mean we can't improve it. We should reach out and see if anyone within out departments have suggestions, and tweak things based off that feedback. What do you think?"

She nodded. "That seems like a good idea. I don't think you knew about my suggestion at the last Wizemgamot meeting? I suggested the possibility of a foster-care system rather than just the orphanage... I know it's kind of out of the way, but it would fall under both our departments."

"That sounds like a great idea!" she says emphatically, though her eyes are a little sad at the reminder of her own adoptee. "Although I'm not too sure how much a foster system would involve our department under normal circumstances."

She snorted briefly. "I'll come by with some ways for your department to get involved... I know the American foster system has the Law Enforcement involved. And that's what I want to get established for here... No more orphanage, but pure family homes with distinct attention and parenting styles attached to raising children properly."

She hmms. "I am somewhat familiar with the American system, and I can't say that's something we should try to emulate. As far as I know, law enforcement only gets involved in cases of abuse or neglect--i.e., not normal circumstances. Step one would be finding a screening system that weeds out those lacking any parenting skills."

She nodded in acknowledgement. "I've been brainstorming ways to keep it truthful, the screening system, but I think I might need to get the Department of Mysteries involved as well." Sera remarked with a sigh.

She frowns at that. She isn't much a fan of the Department of Mysteries, as she believes they have an amazing lack of transparency and accountability--and especially because they can, essentially, operate outside the law. "I was thinking more along the lines of psychological evaluations, parenting classes, and check-ins, so please, do explain."

She frowned briefly before explaining. "I was thinking if they can develop something like a form that forces the person using it to tell the truth, so we can match the families with the children that fit them the best. I know that people can lie on the no-magical forms for foster children."

"I'm sure an anti-cheating spell would have the same effect--anyone answering the questions dishonestly would be cheating, as they would be attempting to deceive in order to benefit. As long as the form isn't the only entry requirement, other issues should be caught or corrected by the others."
