On the hunt for daycare again
« on: August 26, 2009, 09:35:31 PM »
Our daycare informed us today that they'll be closing the infant building and will no longer take children younger than two after the end of October.  With our son's due date a month away and our daughter not turning two until the beginning of November, this puts us in a bind for child care.  Please pray for us as we search for affordable, safe, stimulating child care at the last minute.  Many local daycare centers have waiting lists several months long and some are over a year long.  Eek!

Thanks, everyone.

Lord, have mercy on Mr. and Mrs. Y.  Give them peace with this issue and help them to find childcare for little C. and the new baby.

Through the prayers of the Theotokos and St. Stylianos, have mercy on your servants.

If you're living a happy life as a Christian, you're doing something wrong.

Lord, have mercy!
Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.

Thanks, everyone.  We're going tomorrow to our former daycare.  It might be a little inconvenient as it's a bit out of the way on my morning drive, but it's a good place and I feel comfortable taking our kiddos there.  I think this is all going to work out after all.
