I agree with you. SPARC helped out me and my DH
in October of last year when the school wouldn't give us any info. I tweaked a letter that they have for schools and FOIL ACTs.
We got the answer we were looking for the next morning.
I've also recently found that people on here are very experienced in many areas of new families, custody and visitation issues, etc.
The STEP FAMILIES forum, I wish I would've known about it beginning January 19, 2009.
Anyhoo, if you ever want to chat, give me a holler.
