More From Day Care

Oh my poor Girlie, what are we going to do with you. I guess I should've waited to make my post until later in the day. Upon picking her up today from day care, I was met by the Director. Girlie bit someone yesterday, which I wasn't told of. I had picked her up in the front when the cw dropped her off from her visit. Today, she bit TWO more kids, and is going for faces now each time! The Director said that they usually disenroll children like this after two of these instances, but since she knows I am making the agency aware of the situation, etc will work with me if they will put some type of support in place. What, therapy??? Sure, it sounds great, but she isn't verbal enough or mature enough to understand this. You can't reason with her like a 4 or even 3 year old. Even an older two year old. I don't know what I'll do if they say she can't return. I can't take days off to get a new day care figured out with paperwork and such. And if she moves somewhere else, it will most likely happen there as well. Really I am surprised that they aren't watching her more closely. She bit Tues and left a bruise, and was then able to bite again Wed and twice Thurs??? Where is the supervision??? The Director said that one of the parents complained. I would too, I understand, but what are they doing about it there? Tomorrow I will be asking. The documentation always says they "talked" to her about biting. She's not even two. Don't talk to her - say "We don't bite" and sit her down for a few min, that is what we did here and we don't have the issues like that. She HATES time out, it works pretty well for her, I'm going to suggest they try it. Pray for us. I do NOT want to be one of those foster parents who "gives up" so to speak and ends up just a bump in the road for her. She NEEDS stability!!!

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
