Today at School/Work and Home

Today was Field Day at my school. A time for all of the 3rd through 5th graders to go crazy and run from game to game to have their tags punched showing that they have been to and played as many as they could. My friend and I opted to stay in with the ones who couldn't go out for behavior, late work, or fines. You may say we got the raw end of the deal, but I would disagree. :) It is FREEZING outside!!! Yesterday was so hot I ended up putting on the air because the attic/boys room was stifling. Today the kids were running their hands under the hot water in the bathrooms after coming in because they were so cold! And we stayed inside with actually very well bahaved students. She worked on her foster daughter's lifebook and I checked email and talked. Poor us! :)

I did hear from Girlie's cw finally, since I emailed her this morning asking what was going on. They have decided - oh my gosh - that that couple isn't the best placement for her! What do you know. They have another in mind who MAY work. Time is running out! Plus, my friend J has decided that she would like to have Girlie as a placement. This happened right before the other couple, but they have yet to even acknowledge it. I mentioned again today after hearing from her about the first couple that she would like to be considered. She knows Girlie well, has researched RAD and dealt with it before, has holidays and summers off, can keep her in her current day care, etc. We'll see... but I don't think they will let her. They make me quite mad!

The cw also told me that the supervisor said (follow that???) :) That I don't need to go to Liam's ACR. BUT, didn't actually say that, yes, they are still backing me as placement, so I'm still going! :)

I hope that things turn to Girlie's favor. Good thing you are a persistent advocate for her.

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: http://www.cdc.gov/hiv/resources

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
