not so good news and good news.

sorry that it took me so long to post...many have email to find out the latest.

court was not good. not bad.
CPS is clearly unprepared and as of the 1st didnt know whose side they are taking. that's right, after 2.5 years of him being in foster care, they still know know their position. disgusting.

the GAL assures me that the slow pace of this case will work in my favor in the end. baby j is 2.5 and can not clearly express himself. is it too much to ask that they not leave him alone with a pedophile till he can clearly tell me what went on at the visit? thats what i want. court was continued till Dec 29th.

several people have advised that we (our family) seek legal counsel. have you done that before?


i got to witness one of gods children get a forever family on wednesday.
wednesday my friend paula became a mommy, again.
witnessing an adoption is so overwhelming.
Happy Adoption Day Chydon

As the Avett Brothers put it beautifully...

Always remember, there was nothing worth sharing
Like the love that let us share our name


  1. I have been praying for you and your family and that Baby J will be able to remain safely with you.

    We have some friends who are going through something similar, but not through foster care. Their daughters/stepdaughters were taken afterschool by the biological mom. I guess she had some kind of right because they are having a hard time getting them back. The mom's boyfriend is a sex offender. I think in cases like that and in yours the answer should be pretty clear.

    I will continue to pray for you and Baby J. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas as well.

  2. Our kids' case went on almost 3 YEARS- UGH!!!! And yep until the end they still couldn't get it right.... :( PRAYING FOR YOU!!! We tried to seek legal counsel, but basically foster parents don't get legal representation in court.... :(

  3. What a beautiful family!!

    I had to laugh about your comment on my blog, because that is definitely going to be me. I'm sure I'll burst into tears the minute I climb back into the car to go back to school! Thanks for the heads up! : )

  4. Praying for you in these days ahead!

    Gorgeous family. I love adoption and I love that quote you posted!
