Finally we have employment in Arizona. My DH has been looking out of state for 2 months, and finally, finally a decent offer with a great company! We can FINALLY get the heck out of Michigan.
So he signed the offer today, and a start date of October 13. So we have just a couple of weeks to try to get as much done from Michigan as possible.
I have a DD who is hearing impaired and currently goes to an amazing preschool for deaf and hard of hearing kids. It's part of the regular public school system here and funded by our county. I called down to Tucson School for the Blind and Deaf and got a HUGE run-around. Since my DD is only 4 they say she doesn't qualify for programs until Kindy, but here in MI she has been in a special program for 2 years already. Anyone have any idea how to weed thru all this BS?
Also, we are looking in the Catalina Foothills area for a rental home. We figure we can rent for a year and then once we really get to know the area, buy. Are there other areas we should be looking at? Our big needs are fantastic school system, active neighborhoods, community features (pool, park, etc...) safety, diversity (young families, old families, different religions, nationalities, etc...)
Also, any realtor recommendations?
Thanks! We are so excited to be getting out of Michigan, finally!!
Our kids are 22, 5, 5, and 4
