I know some of you are anxiously waiting to hear about our court date today, so here you go. We were able to meet Cutie’s dad for the first time. He seems to be making good progress and seems very sincere. He was awarded visitation rights today.

Unfortunately, the boys’ mom was a no-show. As you can imagine, this is not good news. She has not been able to be reached for a while and has not been complying with her court orders. Today the judge set another court date for January. In mean time, her attorney, as well as the DCFS workers, will try to get a hold of her and a notice will be published in the papers. If she does not attend in January her rights will be terminated (at least to my understanding). Also, her visitation rights were suspended.

I find myself vacillating between two emotions: I am heartbroken, but at the same time I’m furious. I can’t imagine the situation their mom is in. I don’t claim to understand the struggles she is up against. What could she possibly be doing that is more important than this court hearing? Not one single thing. Jason and I were just blown away to hear about her lack of progress. Lack of effort, really.

Obviously I get really worked up when I think about this. Thank you for letting me vent.

We are absolutely in love with these boys and want what is best for them. I know you do, too. So please continue to join us in praying for them.
