thank you very much for the offerings... how ever,, to those in need of any of those services,, i doubt they would call them miscellaneous...

Shari said...

Thank you, Paisley, for telling me your concern about calling these services miscellaneous. I didn't intend to trivialize them, by calling them miscellaneous. What I meant to say is that they are uncategorized. But, the writing prompt is "Miscellaneous". So, I added "Instead of Categorized Resources" to the top of the post. Many of these books and organizations I have used or referred to other people.

I like your blog. And the post today was appropriate too. Everybody needs the kind of help you are offering at least a few times in their life. Thanks for stopping by mine too. I'm new to this, but it is fun.

VERY good resources...I have someone I have to pass those numbers onto right now. I have turned them to some other areas but they haven't taken their advice...maybe they will call these numbers...the situation is getting desperate.
Thanks!

My little one had been in daycare too when we were in Japan, when she was just 16 months old. Yeah it was heartwrenching that time too but I think now she forgot about all the wailing she before!
Thanks for visiting!
