Nathan is Hebrew and means "gift from God" - we couldn't have been more blessed than to have been chosen as his parents!

Thank you for keeping up-to-date with Nathan. We hope you visit often and enjoy experiencing our son's journey as much as we do. Please feel free to leave comments.

We love hearing from everyone!!!!

When Enough is Enough

As you may or may not know, Nathan receives lots of indispensable therapy through the Early Intervention program. His services consists of occupational therapy, physical therapy, speech therapy, and special education. All of Nathan's therapists are truly experts in their field. However, sometimes that's just not enough.

Our family has been struggling with one of Nathan's therapists attendance for quite sometime and my patience has officially run out. The therapist has a litany of reasons why she's unable to make her scheduled sessions - all of which could be completely true and valid. The reasons are irrelevant to me - frequent absenteeism inhibits Nathan's development and it's not going to be tolerated. We schedule our life around therapy because its value cannot be overstated. The developmental progress Nathan has made is tremendous and the reliability of his therapists is essential to the process.

So, we are officially one therapist short, but Nathan's case worker is on it and we should have a replacement soon.

It stinks having to fire your therapist.

Hey, do you have any info on Bill A158-A in the assembly; Bill S58-A in the Senate? Those are the ones regarding the changes to EI, right? Is there somewhere online I can look them up? (not that I'd be able to understand the legalese)

Drop me a comment on my blog or email me at yulan (at) ecki (dot) com. Thanks! I'm trying to spread the word.
