  • I did when I lived in Michigan. It was for a few months after my first daughter was born. I did not have to be on a waiting list, and they paid 80% of the care costs.

  • I did about a year ago for my son...I had an amazing social worker that actually showed me a couple loop holes for my situation soo I didnt have to wait but a week! Other wise the waiting list was 4-6 months long!
