Big News

Tonight upon arriving home there was a voice message from my lawyer for Liam's adoption. His subsidy is BACK! I can go sign the petition for adoption tomorrow and then they will get a court date!!! I'm praying for either May 19 or 26, leaning for the 19th. My parents will both be in town on the 19th for Olivia's huge dance recital, and my mom will be here on the 26th as she's staying with us until we leave for FL, stopping in Atlanta for a week on the way down. If we weren't able to get a date in May, we'd have to wait until July, and I'd love for one or both of my parents to be able to be here for one of the adoptions! How exciting!!!

Also, Liam has wanted nothing much at all to do with potty training lately. I'm not worried, Braeden did it in his own time too, no big deal. Yesterday at day care however, Liam went twice on the potty, and tonight in the bath tub he told me he had to POOP, got out of the tub, and POOPED IN THE TOILET!!!! So cool! You go boy! :) He got TWO candies for that! :)

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
