So much is happening!!!

Thursday, May 08, 2008

Well, Savannah's dad was served with papers on monday. They are having a difficult time locating her mother to serve her, but they will find her.
Child protection certifiers came to our house yesterday to go through our house and make sure we have a safe environment for her, and to help us get ready to become her foster parents. I am so excited that this is all happening because It will finally bring some closure to some things and help us help her get what she needs...emotionally, educationally, mentally, and physically. This will surely open a bunch of doors that have been slammed on my face for the past few years. I expected that our first court appearance wouldnt be untill late next week, but NO... it will be tomorrow. We have the prelims where DHS will step in and ask the Judge for temporary custody of Savannah and ask that she stay in our home as her foster parents. I have been so busy this week with psych appointments, counseling, doctors and DHS meetings, that I have not really had time to log food. I have been doing well. I didnt get to go to water aerobics tonight for the first time in over a month because Hayden was too fussy and DH is working.....BUMMER!
I just wanted to keep you all updated!!! Thanks for your support and prayers.

    I didn't know you were foster parent's - how wonderful of you and for you!! I'm so glad it appears to be done, right?! And Savannah is yours? Wow - what a blessing. She is lucky to have such a wonderful mommie (and I'm sure daddy, too!). Tho I don't think there is any luck to it - it came from your determination and willingness and devotion - she is truly blessed.

    Thanks for all your support lately - and always - I really appreciate it!!

    Happy Mother's Day to YOU! You deserve it!!

    Hugs to you my SPfriend,

    Malisa you just concentrate on dealing with the things at hand. With Savannah she comes first. I certainly hope that you can get custody of her
    for good.
    How long have you had her with you? Is the Child Protection in the U.S. good? The one here in Canada are a bunch of goons with certificates. They
    are horrible.
    Well GF I am sending Prayers & good healthy Vibes your way. To help the Judge make the right decision.

    Lots of Love.

    Hey Malisa,

    I just read the update on Holiday to Holiday, and then came to your blog to get more info. I'm so glad you're making progress with the custody issue so you'll be able to "make things happen" in your efforts to help Savannah. You're doing great things for that little girl, and I will continue to pray that God will watch over all of you (including Hayden) and give you all peace. Please keep us posted on the progress.

    I love your baby's name. (Boy right?) I'm an RN in an OB unit - I see that name for both boys and girls.

    You are facing a lot right now, just remember God has promised that he will not put more on us than we can bear. He will give you the strength to do His will.

    God Bless You and your family!! emoticon
