My girl sticks to me like glue. She does everything with me and when I put her down, she stands to hold me. She is starting to venture away and explore her world, but she always comes right back to me. She is Mama's girl.We are Mom's, friends and neighbors. We celebrate most everything together and my life would not be the same without my girlfriends. Some of us are rejoicing in the greatest professional accomplishments of our career and others are struggling in the lowest of times. Some of us are caring for elderly parents in a way that consumes your every being and others are working more than their fair share in life. Some of us are hoping for a better tomorrow, while others don't think tomorrow could get any better than today. While we are all at a different place in life, we always come together for the good times and we offer support in the bad times. It is the friendships of life that adds all the spice and I know I couldn't live without them.
This has been a week where the rules of the CDC have so dramatically affected the Scruggs family that they had to leave their daughter in China while they returned home without her due to the new rules for TB. The rules that were written for adults should be rewritten for our adopted children coming home to America. This will continue to devastate many families if the rules are not changed.
I'm hoping everyone that reads this will sign the petition:
& while all this continues to unfold, Jaylee's family has been fighting the CDC and their ridiculous rules of TB since last August when she was referred to them. Her test results for the sputum culture will be 42 days old, as required, this week. This family needs good news. If the results are positive, Jaylee will most likely never find a home. This sick little girl is a product of her institutionalized environment, but she should be home, with the only family that has been fighting for her for a year now.
We are praying Jaylee home this week.
