First of all thank you for listening. Even though I don't have many people that read what I write, those of you that do and leave me comments of such kindness and wise insights are such kind, caring, awesome people. I know this not only for the comments you leave me, but in what I read in your blogs. Seriously, you people are amazing and I hope you know that my life is blessed because of having met you out here in blogmanity. I love this word...blogmanity. I stole it from The Jason Show. He is an amazing person and is known to give me a laugh or two every week...it would be worth your time to stop in there and check him out. I must admit that I may be a little partial to him because it was through him that I met this really amazing woman that is on a similar journey as mine.
We made the decision to give our daughter one more chance to agree to our original agreement in which we have the custody until she gets her life together by going to counseling and taking a parenting class and then coming here for some long, regularly scheduled visits and then working on transitioning the kids, over time, back to her and then giving her back the custody. If she signs this, we will not have to go to court. We made this offer to her on Tuesday evening but have had no response from her as of yet. She gave birth to a son yesterday afternoon, so we are giving her another day to respond. If she refuses this agreement, we have made the decision that we will fight for full, permanent custody, with her getting scheduled visiting time here. Yes, this will be a long, expensive battle with no guarantee that we will win, but, we know in our hearts that we have to do this for the children's well being and our peace of heart.
As we play this waiting game, my heart aches as I watch my little people playing so happily, as they have no clue that their future...their destiny, very likely lies in the hands of some judge. I am already praying for this judge and everyone else that will come into play as they try to decide what the future holds for two little people. All I know is that while we are here, in this place, we will continue to love, train and guide these little people in the way they should go...we will give them all that they deserve until someone says that we can't or can...and when that day comes we will know that we did everything possible.
