Oh My Gosh

Well, talk about frustration with the foster care agency. I had spoken with Little One's cw about two weeks ago regarding his hospital lab work, EEG, and CT scan. I had scheduled it for the 14th, this coming Tues, and asked that he or the case aide help with half of the day as I had to sleep deprive him the night before and also needed to be in my classroom some time that day. No problem he said. Twice he called and told me the case aide could do it, he was just waiting to find out a time. He was going to be gone that day. When the aide came for LO's visit Wed, I asked about the time for Tues since the cw hadn't told me one yet. He had NO idea what I was talking about, the cw had NEVER mentioned it! Of course the cw is gone now until after Tues. He said he would check his schedule, then tonight I got a msg saying he could only help for about an hour. (LO is scheduled to be there for 6 hours.)

I am so upset. I called the supervisor and told him of the situation. I said that either someone from the office needed to be there half the day Tues, or it would need to be rescheduled, and since I will be going back to work the 20th, they would have to do it the whole day. Of course that would also mean that I would have to sleep deprive him the night before I work. Lovely all around. I highly highly doubt that anyone will help this Tues. We are down to only 2 cws and they are gone that day, and the aide obviously can't unless they change something of his that is scheduled. Yuck.

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
