- My husband and I, the Dynamic Duo, have been married since 2003. We've weathered the storm of chronic disease (diagnosis 2006), infertility (diagnosis 2007), turning 30 (2006/2007 respectively) a first adoption (2009) of a tender hearted, compassionate Ukrainian BIG boy (born 2006), who has told us he'd like a baby sister, baby brother, big brother, and REALLY big sister. We recently completed our second Ukrainian adoption journey, which brought us a daughter (born 2005). We'll see what else God brings our way!

So I'm on the verge of pulling Amelia out of school and homeschooling her. The school called today and told me that she would be "excused" from school if she didn't get updated on her vaccines. I. am. so. sick of vaccines! The poor girl has been home for LESS THAN 6 MONTHS and she's supposed to be up to date already?! I have words I won't type to say to the school. And while filling out a waiver for vaccines (with shaking hands because I'm so frustrated!!!!!) I was told that her being adopted and home for 6 months and getting HUGE fevers after every shot and the fact that she got 7 SHOTS last month and that she has a bronchial infection and is on meds right now won't get the waiver approved. I'm calling the health department once I get the number, but I want to know my rights...Any legal advice here?! I'm at my wits end! I get these stupid notices every couple of weeks and it HAS to stop. I'm spacing out the vaccines with the over sight of my pediatrician and doing what's best for my daughter...Grrrrr!!!!
