Hello Nina and all,
In 1989 I went to S.Carolina to pick up my four grandsons. They had been taken away from their mother and my son because they weren't being cared for properly. I brought them to Washington and we were getting along just fine. Then in 1993 she suddenly appeared and asked for custody. The judge gave her temporary custody and permission to take them to Japan.
We saw the oldest boy just before he joined the army and the third son came to visit for a short while. We have not seen the other two since they were taken. I have eight great grandchildren by those boys/men and I have never seen any of them. I know the pain you are going through. I have been grieving for the past twenty years.
I am certainly praying that things work out for your grandchildren. They need to have a more secure life. I won't give up on that. In Oregon the custodial parent cannot move away from the other parent without permission. That may be an avenue for pursuit.
What is the cult. I thought the moonies were gone. I don't know of any other cult in Oregon, but there certainly could be more than one.
Patty, I am in the process of crocheting a stained glass afghan. I bought some verigated yarn to show to a friend who wants me to crochet an afghan for her. I plan to do broomstick lace for that afghan. She didn't like the yarn I found so I am thinking about using it in the stained glass afghan. I have another darker skein of verigated yarn and I can use it as well. I am thinking it would certainly be different and could be quite pretty. Have you an opinion on that?
Louise, I am glad you checked in however briefly. It is nice to know that you are there, even if you don't have time to write very much. I have been in that position more than once. I am trying to break my own attendance streak so I may follow your example in the future.
I didn't see anything from Ann, but as I recall she is having a chemo treatment today. I hope things are going well for her.
I'll probably drop in later.
