I never even knew there were programs to help. I've been VERY lucky that my husband makes a good enough salary, and that my ex-husband is an honest man to pay child support, that I have been able to stay home with my kids. That and the fact that Michael was SO high end, and without any other medical problems.
You ladies amaze me. Y'all have joked about writing in to Dr. Phil, I say do it! Send him a list of all these posts. if he were to see what all you have done, gone through, put up with, and still accomplished; he would be amazed! Who knows? He might could put you in touch with the right people, or maybe light a fire under some butts with his national televised pull (especially with elections coming up in just a couple of years - y'all know how early campaigning starts!)
Bonnie - lets go for it. Point me in the right direction - and we'll all do it. (Heck , maybe we could at least get some of y'all a babysitter and a makeover.) <img src="/images/graemlins/wink.gif" alt="" />
