Still no pics. We keep getting excuses. No surprise, really. I told Nichole just today that stepgfg can get a disposable digital camera, take the memoory stick into wallie world, then have them send it to ours and we can develop the pics ourselves. I think Nichole is going to mention it next time. Of course there has to be pics. All emails are short and basically full of no info whatsoever. At times she mentions how poor they are and how hard a time she's having buying the kids stuff for school. If that's truely the case, then welcome to the club. sheesh Once every so often she'll mention that Kayla loves the idea of having aunts and uncles and grandparents and cousins. Nichole told her that she'd have really had them if stepgfg hadn't taken off. (me thinks Nichole is losing patience. ) Several times Nichole has asked about stepgfg's bio Mom. This may seem weird to some, but we were actually close to her for years and years. But I haven't talked with her since stepgfg pulled this stunt except to warn her the girl was on her way to do to her what she'd pulled on us. Each time stepgfg ignores the question completely. Hmmmmmm. Interesting. Still no real info on the kids. Not even the 2 yr old Evan, whom we've never even met. You'd think she'd be filling us in with all sorts of news. Nothing. This is just too weird. Even for stepgfg. Last email she asked about mother in law. Nichole told her that their grandmother was still going strong. I think this was attempting to find out if her grandmother had passed and left her anything. She's in for a rude awakening there. lol Another thing I find strange........ Stepgfg wasn't the brightest crayon in the box. But then she was far from stupid and would've done well in school if she'd applied herself. As I read these emails...............The girl can't spell worth a darn. Easy words. Didn't even spell her grandmother's name right Elise. She had it Ese?? Now come on, she's spelled that name on dozens upon dozens of letters over the years. Guess maybe the drugs have gotten to her brains. At first I thought maybe she was in a hurry. But this is in every email. Sometimes so bad it's like working code. Oh, well. Then I think. Hmmmm. For someone wanting to reconcile she has made no move toward any other member of the family. easy child and Travis are easily accessable via Nichole's mySpace page. There is a positive to this though. Memories of that time are re-surfacing for Nichole. And it's turning out to be a very good thing.
