Hi CruiseMates, I have been sitting here reading your notes to me. I can barely see through the tears. You all have been so supportive in my fight to get Patty. It is over, I give up. Your words have meant so much to me . I have treasured every prayer and good thought you sent to us during our fight. I am trying to decide what to do next. I am thinking of moving to Florida, Lakeland area. I have written to a state agency as to the possibility of employment in the field of developmental disabilities/mental retardation. Again thank you for your support.
Dear Laura, I am so sorry to read that the agency is doing this to you. From what I have read, it is terrible for those like you who want to give help and love to people like Patty who need it more for their own well being. it seems these agencies don't think of how important having a good, stable relationship with someone is. I hope this doesn't hurt her in any way. I know how she was looking so forward to being able to be with you. I can't blame you for giving up, you have tried so very hard, and also think your moving might be good for you also. God bless you both and I pray he helps guide you in your decision.
