We're home, I have so much to share. Yesterday was a complete nightmare and I will fill you in later. We thought we were headed home to the hospital here, had the ambulance ready, and then this hospital refused to take her. She is on medicaid and they didn't think she HAD to be inpatient so wouldn't allow her to be admitted. A lot transpired in the following few hours and it was a MESS!!! But finally friends came to get my boys and bring them back here and she was allowed to stay another night there. She is doing much much better though still very sore and tired. Her wound has packing still and has to be redone twice a day. A friend is coming over tonight to walk me through it ( I was so afraid I'd pass out in the middle and have no adult in the house to help! ) :) We're hoping to leave for FL now next Tues, I've cancelled my trip in Aug to Vegas, and Olivia won't be able to swim in FL, but all of that is OK. God pulled us through a very scary time and I'm just grateful that she is safe and doing well. Praises!!!


Oh, that just stinks. It's hard enough to have your child sick and in pain, but to add being treated poorly on top of everything is not right. I'm so sorry you had to go through all of that. Olivia is one blessed girl to have such a tough mama.

Praying for healing and rest.

Love from Atlanta,

Glad she is okay and home :)

Lisa, I'm so sorry you've had to go through all of this. You are one strong lady. I am praying for you and Olivia. For what it's worth, I was in a Moline ER on Sunday with my youngest son who was having difficulty breathing, and our experience was not good either. We will continue to lift your family up! ---Teri

Praise God that she is home. I'm so sorry that you had to be "run through the mill" in the process!

Praying that you will continue to draw closer to Him and glorify Him through it all!

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: 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
