How well do you know your child's school?

Does your child's school have secrets? Here's a not so lovely post by the Families Against Restraint and Seclusion blog. The post was written in 2009, however schools keep getting added to the list.

It is a state by state listing of schools that have allegedly overused or unnecessarily used restraint and seclusion as a way of dealing with students.

I live in Minnesota. Ummm Minnesota's list is SO LONG that I wanted to vomit before I even read it.

Apparently seclusion rooms are alive and well in Minnesota schools, since we have the highest number of them than any other state!

How about your school? Did you find your school on the list?

You know you're adopting when...

I'm sure some of you reading have things you can add to this. Please join in!

You know you're adopting internationally when:

Your car dies. Completely.
The hot water heater (or any other expensive appliance) dies and is beyond repair.
Your work hours are cut back (temporarily reducing your income enough to put you into panic mode)
You loose your passport.


Please add your own things you've dealt with while in process!
