Blog giveaway


I just got some good news yesterday concerning my son Chris, I have been looking into programs other than day programs to enroll him in. In the process I found out that your children aren't legally yours can you believe that. Yes you are the parent you are there guardian, but you are not their legal guardian unless it's down on paper. Example you are in a hospital situation child is 18 they ask are you the Legal Guardian your first response is yes, no you're wrong you are the parent guardian but not legal. Weird right? Well I am now in the process of filling out these papers for Chris which means I can make decisions for him and not the state. Onto good news Chris was accepted to go to a sleep away camp for 10 days he is so excited about this. I am praying everything goes well there in July I will keep you all updated. I am looking into respite programs but I do need to be his Legal Guardian first before I make further decisions.

On another note, because of my good news I decided to have a blog giveaway. I have extra of some of American Crafts Dear Lizzy line and thought I would share. Please post a comment here, and feel free to share my blog and become followers. It would be great to reach 75 followers, and I think that my friends will help me. Thanks you have until Memorial Day 5/31/2010 to post I will announce a winner on Tuesday.

Isn't that legal guardian stuff weird? We've been through that in another situation...ugh.

Anyway, so glad to hear you found a fun alternative for him, call me if you need any help with the paperwork!

That is just not right... hoping the paperwork issues go smoothly for you. Camp sounds like so much fun, I bet Chris is super excited. Have a happy weekend my friend.

Is the legal guardian thing in every state? Very strange & good to know.

Thanks for offering a giveaway. :)

Wow I don't have kids but that would be very agrivating that you're not the Legal Guardian. It just sounds rediculous but I hope things work out for you and your son.

Thanks for offering a giveaway.

Yes I found that out as well... once your child turns 18 you are no longer their legal guardian even if they are a senior in high school with a few months to finish its all them and no longer you signing things for the school... its something you don't think about while they are still in school.. love the American crafts goodies...
