A Happy Call

Daughter called a little after 8:00 this morning and sang good morning to me. She said she slept well. She was looking forward to going to her program. She was happy. They have fixed the medication problems. She is getting her iron again, and she is getting her cranberry twice a day.
One of the things I realized on my personal retreat Sunday was that perhaps part of the reason Daughter is there is so that by my advocating for her the care of the other women there may improve, too. Perhaps.
I hope that I am making a difference. It seems like I did for Daughter, and hopefully some other, as well. The knowledge makes it easier when things are stressful and I'm spending lots of time advocating for Daughter.

You are making a difference in many ways; one of those ways is by writing this blog. You've had a huge influence on the way I look at my own situation, especially with regard to the fact that we come from a completely different belief system. Seems like it only matters that our core beliefs are related to advocacy for children. Thank you for being my friend.

Thanks, Maeve. You've taught me so much through your experiences with your RADs.
