Boston Catholic Charities Halts Adoptions


I know it's the right of any religion to prohibit anything they want (even if I don't like it), but I'm still sad about this one. Especially since Catholic Charities doesn't want to stop, and unanimously voted consider gay and Lesbian applicants right along with every other prospective household.

In other news, my ALACE materials have arrived! It all looks v. interesting and I can't wait to get started! I've mailed off my payment plan contract and YAY!

And also, I'm still waiting to hear from Heart and Hands. Elizabeth Davis left a message on my machine (OMG ELIZABETH DAVIS CALLED MEEE![/fangirl]) explaining the tuition payments and also wanted to speak to me about whether I would be a good candidate for distance learning. I don't see why I wouldn't, but *shrug*. I called back and left HER a message. Now I'm just waiting. But whee! for things moving in the right direction.

Oh, and woah! I have lost fifteen pounds, y0. Not done yet, but, wow anyway. And this evening I'm going to the 13th birthday party of my friend's daughter Katy, who is sort of my (and DD Mary's) goddesschild. Her birth was the first birth I attended in a doula capacity (or ANY capacity besides being the one giving birth). *celebrates* Thirteen years. 'Bout time I actually became what I want to be when I grow up, huh?

And at this time next week I will be in (hopefully) sunny Atlanta with my patchfire and her lovely family.

Life, at the moment, is good.

*borrows patchfire's icon*

ETA: WOAH. Mere minutes after I finished this post, Elizabeth called back! She thinks I should do well in the distance programme. I should be enrolling by 1 April. That loud whoop you heard? Was me.
