Life Skills...

If you have a child with special needs, you understand the pain of these two words. We will fight with all we have...If we can not get an IEP appointment on Sept 2, Caitlyn will not be starting the school year. I made it very clear today that I will not be sending her into a life skills program. I will not give up on my daughter. Do you have any idea how much doubt the school district will try and put in your head? I am so sure about what we are doing, but I still got off the phone and was in tears. I felt like I was some how letting my daughter down. Why do I let them get to me...I feel so defeated. But we will stay strong.

I am still without internet at home...Hopefully soon! I'm wondering if anyone would like to have a blog set up so we can all share calorie boosting ideas? I'm willing to set something up in my free time if anyone is interested!

Thank you everyone for your support.

We Haven't Completely Gone Away

Just a quick update for all of our regular readers. We are without Internet at home for another couple of weeks as we work through some things. I try to get the free WiFi around town when I have time alone. Caitlyn celebrated her 5th birthday last Tuesday. We haven't had a party yet, because I want to be able to invite friends from school. She had her well child check on Friday and is 3 feet 10 1/2 inches!!! She gained 1 1/2 lbs, and is at 39 now, but we can't really count it since she grew 2 1/2 inches!! We have put the weight issue on watch for now, but not really doing a lot of different stuff...Just crossing our fingers that she doesn't get sick! That's it for now!
