Who ARE some of these people???

These people who are supposed to watch out for innocent lives. To serve and protect those who cannot protect themselves. I'm tired of seeing the "bad" of this system.

We had our home visit today. Our cw said that just today the DCFS worker who was looking into Sis' situation finally came in to talk to her. After repeated unreturned phone calls. He said that since "you (the cw) are her caseworker and mom seems to be doing what she needs to, we're going to close the case." She then re-told him that no she is not mom's caseworker, that her other two children's cases are terminated which means her case was terminated, and that mom has not been seen by the agency since January, so who says that she is doing what she needs to do???? He just kind of said - Oh. She told him something needs to be done to assure that this baby is being taken care of, even if it's just to open the case intact for 6 months, which we already thought had been done. He said he'll talk to his supervisor. OH MY GOSH! So no one has even been checking on her!!!???!!! Are You Kidding!? Here it has been over four weeks since I've found out there was a baby, over three weeks since the case was hotlined, and really nothing has been done. Nothing has been done. A couple checks, which were bad at first and now "seem" ok he said. So you're just assuming she's doing things and you want to close the case!? AHHH!!!! My cw said that if they do not open the case she is calling the state's attorney herself.

Pray, please, please pray for this innocent caught in the middle of - excuse me - IDIOCY!!!! (Can you tell I'm frustrated?????) :0)

What you should know about HIV

-HIV can NOT be spread through casual/household contact. HIV is not spread through hugging, kissing, shaking hands, sharing toys, sneezing, coughing, sharing food, sharing drinks, bathing, swimming or any other casual way. It has been proven that HIV and AIDS can only be spread through sexual contact, birth, breastfeeding and blood to blood contact (such as sharing needles). - HIV is now considered a chronic but manageable disease. With treatment, people who are HIV+ can live indefinitely without developing AIDS and can live long and full lives. - People who are HIV+ deserve to be treated with love, respect, support and acceptance as all people do. Additional information on transmission of HIV can be found on the Center for Disease Control website:

Little Did I Know

Little did I know that the road would be so rocky
Little did I know that the trip would take so long
Little did I know that my heart could hurt so much
Little did I know that God is never wrong

Little did I know that love could be so powerful
Little did I know that a dream so far could go
Little did I know that God would place the right ones
Little did I know that my heart, so large, could grow

Little did I know that a dream has it’s own timing
Little did I know that this day would finally come
Little did I know that four souls would be sent to guide me
Little did I know that they would choose to call me mom

But God knew all along and He had a plan to follow
God knew all along that my dream would soon come true
God knew all along that we five should be together
God knew all along that I’d share it all with you
