Just heard from our cw. They are not going to even try to make Girlie specialized. They think the guidlines are too stringent and she won't make the cut. So they're not even going to try. Yes, maybe she wouldn't make it, but isn't it worth her LIFE to try??? I do NOT think she will make it long term with a traditional foster home; not the ones our agency still has that is. I could be wrong. I HOPE and PRAY I'm wrong, but I don't think she will.

That sucks- can you talk to her GAL? does she have one? and doesn't she have a cps worker too? here in TX they have both- a state worker and an agency one if she is placed through an agency. that isn't right- poor girlie!

Unfortunately, the GALs are so busy they usually don't get back to you. I've never had one even meet the child they are representing!!! And here in IL we only have the agency worker. Such a bummer!

That does suck. It is really sad that kids do not get the intervention they need from the beginning, instead they are made to wait until they have failed so many times. Check out my post: Keep on keeping on.

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
