A few months back Roxy let us know that she was ready to move on and find a nursing job at a hospital. Roxy and I have built a great friendship over the last year and 8 months. She is so sweet to me and I know she loves me very much. We have lots of fun together and we have become quite the artistic team. There always comes a time for everyone to move forward in their lives and we understood that Roxy needed to begin her nursing career.

For the last two months mom has been doing interviews with different women to see who will be my new friend. We had hired one girl on the spot. She did a great job with working out with me. My parents decided that we needed to go back to working with a physical therapist. I need to be pushed and continue to try out new exercises. Cynthia was supposed to start on May 6th. It would give her three weeks to get everything in order and quit her current job. It was two weeks later when we received a call that she would not be able to accept the position. Her dad had become ill and she needed to take care of him and give him physical therapy. It was a bit of a shock. My parents were relieved that at least she did not take the position then have to leave here without us having a replacement girl. Sometimes things happen for a reason so we took that as a sign and back to interviewing more girls.

My mom had made the job description very detail oriented listing all the duties that come with the job.. We didn’t get as many applicants as before but we did have the opportunity to interview 4 more girls. Mom would first read their resumes then she would send to Maria Jose for a quick look over. The next step would be a video call and if that went well they would come out to Delicias and spend the day with me seeing what my daily routine entails. They would have to work out with me on the floor. Maria Jose was also speaking with them after mom’s first phone interview so that they could compare notes about each girl. We have two girls coming out in the next few weeks. We shall see who gets chosen to hang out with me!

I want to say to Roxy, thank you for loving me the way you do and for taking such good care of me. I know we will be friends forever and I wish you all the luck and the very best in your new endeavors.
Love Malia
