    there must be some way for her to be watched or under

    for her OWN safety...??

    Good news!!! FCS is investigating us,my husband,my son and myself, to see if we can be Yaffa's foster family. First, they check out our Drivers License. Then they do finger printing . Then a social comes to our home to make sure it is suitable for Yaffa. They they make their decision


    Please pray that we get Yaffa.

    My daughter finally had a visit with her daughter on Thursday. It went OK except afterwards was when she was arrested.

    She will see Yaffa Tuesday from 9-11

    Thanks for caring

    Today we had some good news. Allyson is going to be allowed to supply Yaffa with breast milk. My husband and I were given Wednesday visits with Yaffa. So we will get to see her for the first time in about 3 weeks. Finally a case worker is coming over to our home Wednesday to check out the house and me to see if she can place Yaffa here.

    Things are looking up. I do have a question. As most of you know, I am fused from C2 to pelvis. Any hints on how to get down to be on the floor with the baby.


    Thanks in advance
    Melissa

    Good luck with your family and health. You have many things going on and I hope you remember to take care of you. Difficult I'm sure but your family needs you to be as healthy as possible. We'll await your posts and pray for better days to come. Janet
