A huge thank you to Michelle (see her comment on my previous post below). This wonderful lady, a stranger to me, sent me the most awesome care package in the mail. It contained household supplies, clothing (including her favourite pink suit, which I absolutely love), and some Usborne books for our son.
I must say, the Usborne books are wonderful. I had heard of them before, but never seen any. Our little guy, Kelton, is 3 but can already read very well, and the first thing he noticed was that there are internet links in the books. He's been reading the "encyclopedia of the human body" and going to the associated web pages. It is *such* a relief to have something to occupy him while we work on all the issues that need to be dealt with.
Michelle, you're an angel!
