At 9 o'clock this morning I got the phone call from the State:

Michaela's hearing was dismissed in our favor!

The State considers her disabled and she qualifies for services!



No more phone calls, no more late nights over mounds of paperwork, no more testing. I couldn't be more relieved. It has been a very long and tiresome 10 months!

It would've helped if more people would've done their jobs or had been willing to go the extra mile. But, except for a few "good Samaritans" along the way, it was like pulling teeth to get her on this benefit.

It's because of this that I have saved every ounce of beneficial State documentation I got. Every phone number, every contact, every URL that I found that helped. In case someone else has to go through this. Someone who DESERVES to not go through that rigamarole.

I'M gonna be the Good Samaritan next time.

Because parents of sick children just. don't. need. the. hassle.


Thank the Lord!

It's OVER!

I cried with joy when I read the news. Praise the Lord. I'd pray, Lord, I know Kelly has done everything she could do to make this happen. I know she had her "ducks in a row".

I realize God is the God of the impossible but I was sure in this particular case that you had made His job as easy as it could be.

WooHoo...congrats!! No child/family should have to fight for something like this! We families have it hard enough on a dayd by day basis but to have to 'prove' it to someone behind a desk who hasn't walked in our shoes is ridiculous!!

So happy for you and hope you are breathing easier now!
