More Info

Well I did find out a little info today, though not quite what I was going for. I called our licensing worker today. J and I have a good working relationship with her. She works out of an office of our agency that is about 40 min north of us, so we don't see her a whole lot. I got a hold of her right away and told her that I had heard something and wanted to know if she had any information. She all but gasped and asked what I had heard. I said that I heard our agency lost it's contract with DCFS. She said that wasn't what she thought I was going to ask, but couldn't believe that. She said that she didn't know anything about that, but if it was true she wouldn't be told. She said that if they told people everyone would jump ship. That makes sense. Then I asked what she thought I had heard. She said she thought I had heard she was leaving the agency. I said, "WHAT?" She is leaving. She, like so many before her now, can't "take it any more." She feels that the things going on within our agency are affecting her professionally and she is moving to another, smaller, specialized agency May 1. Unreal. What is going on??? She also said that she thinks a few others from her office and going to be following her. Wow.

It is CRAZY!!!! I hate to hear that- can you go to her agency?

did you read this ?

I hadn't read that until you sent this. Wow. At first I was really worried, because this is the agency we want to move to. I then found out that ours is through Joliet Diocese, not Chicago, so ours is not affected. Still waiting to find out for sure about our own agency though.

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
