Caseworker... Blues???

Well, as I've hinted at recently, we have had some issues with our current caseworker. She's worked with us since last spring in varying degrees and recently we have really had some problems. Well, I've had some problems with her. I've caught her in lies, etc. Not the best situation.

Anyway, she has cancelled the last two weeks of home visits which are set for every Monday at 4:30pm. Two Mondays ago she called around 4 to say she left the office early because she wasn't feeling well. She said she still wasn't feeling well and would not be at the visit that evening which the CASA worker was coming to, and asked me to tell the CASA worker as she did not have the number to reach her. In the background was a very boisterous little one. She has no kids.

Last Monday she called early to see if she could move the visit up. I had taken Olivia up north for an early doctor's appt and we then were going to do some thrift shopping. I ended up only spending a small amount of time at one store as that is the moment when my illness really decided to rear it's ugly head. Anyway, the cw had called on the way to the store while we were still a long way from home. She told me that the office was closing early and she was to do her visits earlier. I had to say, sorry, but we had planned on 4:30 and I wouldn't be home before then. We cancelled the visit. I later found out that the office had closed early, but that they were told to continue working, they just couldn't be in the office due to sewer gas fumes. She lied! (The last of a few I've actually caught her in.)

Today, no one had still shown up for our 4:30 home visit. At 4:50 I called the office to see if she was even in today. I was told she no longer works there!!!!! OK!!! Well, then who is our caseworker??? Crazy!

My friend who has a 3 year old through the same agency had been having some problems with her as well and we have heard rumors that many complaints were coming in about her. So, either she quit or was "let go," but either way we have no worker right now. Unreal.

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
