She's going to spend the whole day with her future roomies at the group home. She got up this morning wanting to go, got ready with no complaints (unheard of!) and we took her to the home. They have plans to go to the movies and make spaghetti for dinner. We got there, and she was smiling and happy as we greeted everyone. Then she turned to me, put her arms around me, kissed me, and said "Bye Mom"! No anxiety or complaints at all.

DD had a great day. They went to see Footloose, and they said she stood up and started dancing in the middle of the movie. She loves to dance. I don't know if I ever mentioned this, but there are men and women both living in this group home, as well as the other group home. Apparently one of the young men kind of likes DD, and they sat together in the movie and held hands. DH is more than a little bothered by this. I can't say I feel too great about it either, but I know that there are full-time staff members there around the clock, and they stay awake to make sure everyone stays where they're supposed to. I do think it's kind of cute, as long as it stays innocent, and if it helps with the transition, I think it will be okay. I'm hoping they'll just be good friends.
Gracekrispy, my granddaughter acts like she feels fine, but she's still really croupy. The breathing treatments are a HUGE battle. I just hope they are helping.

Sooooooooooooo glad the drop off and day went so well! I agree with you. Holding hands with that guy is cute. It does sound like there is good supervision so it will probably be fine. Continued prayers!Nancy
