We Did It!

Thank you to those who helped with playing Santa!!! Olivia (and I) sold $1340 worth of fundraiser items!!! Over $540 went directly to our schools and we will be getting the Wii and some games for Christmas from Santa!!! Thank you!

I also was able to get into the therapist I was hoping for. I wasn't crazy about our conversation. Long story, I know she doesn't know me, but I get real tired of people automatically treating you / talking to you a certain way because you hold a medicaid card. She's the only one in the area who directly bills medicaid, I get that there are probably a lot of people who don't show up, etc, but give me the benefit of the doubt before you talk to me that way. Urgh! We have our first appt, more an evaluation, on Oct. 21. Two weeks later will be a treatment plan session, and then her first "actual" appt will be two weeks after that. Here's hoping! :)

Yay! I'm glad you met your goal.

Also, the therapist is good news or is it? What kind of therapist is she? I hope it goes well. Have you ever been through the evaluation process before? I have found it very interesting and helpful. But it is a lot of work for kids.

About Me

I am a single mom to four amazing kids; each of whom just happen to have been adopted. The first three were adopted through foster care, and we just completed an international adoption from Haiti. Our family has grown through adoption and I am all the more blessed to know each of my children. I worship a mighty God, teach Special Ed, love bargains, and am inspired by Pinterest... come along with us for the ride!

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
