The judge told my attorney to make sure we bring our family and friends because as long as things continue to go this way, WE WILL BE DONE IN DECEMBER!! Happy Pearl Harbor Day!!!
    Sounding good.

        22 more days to final hearing!! No appeal filed to the consent ruling!! I did get a friend request from DOT on Facebook but I don't think that counts and it kind of made me giggle. Really? A friend request? After all these years, that's the most concern she can show for this child??

          After all these years of frustration, LB is now OFFICIALLY MY DAUGHTER!!!!! I haven't felt this settled or at peace in years.

          The Best Interest / Final hearing was scheduled for yesterday. DOT managed to get arrested the day before, and so once again, she failed to come to the hearing. Since June, when she requested a continuance to get an attorney, and refused to give consent, we've had three hearings. One in August, one in September, and then yesterday. That makes three hearings where she was in jail and scheduled to appear in a criminal hearing on the same day at the same time. I call that Divine Intervention.

          Even though she has a year to appeal the finalized adoption, I'm not going to worry about that.

                  Just saw this!!!!!

                  The wheels of gooberment turn slowly, but they grind up the ones like dot.

                  Now to avoid making comment about her in front of little bit. I know from experience it is hard to do~~~ It is parents like you that give me hope for the future.

                    Thank you all!!! Not only for your well wishes and good thoughts, but for the support this board has given me over the years. At the times when I thought my sanity was stretched to the limit, you guys always managed to pull me back in off the ledge.

                    And as far as speaking about DOT, she is now only a passing thought from time to time. Force of habit I guess... a habit I am happy to let go after having to track that kind of dysfunction for so many years. We are moving on with our lives and we are all doing very well.

                    Thanks again for all of your help and support.
