Default A little good news

Today the members of Patty's service team had a meeting. I knew they were meeting and worried all day. As I walked in from work tonight the phone rang. It was Patty's guardian. We had a long talk about me taking care of Patty. He was on my team today and fought the head of the Shared Family Living Program over it. She seemed bent on making me pay for the misdeeds of the former other half of this household. He also told me that Pattys Resource Coordinator came out on my behalf in a big way. Patty's Day Services Manager came to the meeting even though officially she was on vacation. She too advocated to have Patty placed with me. I sit here and weep at the support they showed for me. My tears also flow because I know that a lot of this good news has come from my very wonderful friends here on this website. Your prayers have helped me get this far. It is still not a "done deal" but I am feeling so optimistic tonight. Tomorrow Patty and I will leave for vacation and I will have the best time. How can I miss? I am cruising with the best of the best and Patty too. Thanks for your prayers and good thoughts, keep them coming and this will happen for me. CruiseMates are AWESOME.

Laura

Yes, God WILL make it right. When do you find out for sure that you can keep Patty?

Laura,
It sounded like a very positive meeting today, can't see how things could not go with you taking care of Patty....Safe traveling and we'll see you onboard Glory on Sat....

This really is promising news. At least it's leaning your way. Now all you have to worry about is having a great time with Patty on your cruise. Bon Voyage!!
