things to do

There are lots of things to do before my daughter comes. She is medically fragile, so there are things that need to be done to the house and people to call to prepare for her arrival. I think I'd better make a list.

-get a phone jack put in her room (need to have access to 911)
-call the electric company (to notify them of a medically fragile person in house)
-arrange for a.m. snow removal (I can't be going out to do it!)
-find the appropriate special ed. preschool
-interview nurses for school
-interview night nurses
-get CPR certified (for real :p )
-interview the pediatrician

There is probably more. I just can't think of it at this moment.
+I should get some papers to enroll her in the public schools tomorrow.
+I have an appointment with the pediatrician next Friday.

so much to do! I hope she can come home soon!

Been Matched!

I haven't posted in a while. I've read other blogs, but haven't posted. I have been very busy with a lot on my mind.
I have been matched for an adoption! I will have a 4-year-old girl by the end of this year (I hope!)
This little girl is so darn cute, I can't stand it! She lives in Florida right now and her foster mom can't adopt her for personal reasons. She sounds like a fabulous foster mom, though!!! The little girl loves music, the color purple, visiting the mall, and the shows on NickJr.
She also has spina bifida, is respiratory compromised and has seizures. Once a contract goes through, I will go down to visit and prove I know how to take care of a person with these issues.
I CAN'T WAIT TO MEET HER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
