  1. my Dr. referred me to you. My son is 1 month with a colostomy bag on his stoma and a mucous fistula on his lower stomach. I wanted to inquire if you provided home nurse?

    • You are looking for the state of Georgia early intervention program which is different from us. You can find them by calling your local health department and asking for the babies cant wait early intervention program. They have wonderful services.
      Warmly, Linda

  3. Hello I have a 5yr old child who been in the babies can’t wait program as a infant after having brain hemorrhaging. I didn’t see any problem so I stopped the program. My child is now kindergarten and I have been seeing slow progress. I wonder if there’s a program in N.C. that I could contact I no longer live in G.A.

    • Vanessa: Yes there are intervention programs in every state. However, because your child is 5, the school district is responsible for any evaluation and treatment rather than a private agency. Talk to the kindergarten teacher and arrange for an evaluation through the school district. Good luck,
      Warmly, Linda
