Custody Case Settled


New Member
Hi Family:

Just wanted to let y'all know that yesterday we had our court appearance and finally the matter is resolved! :bravo:
I now have joint custody with difficult child of Baby J. I have physical and residential custody for at least the next 24 months. :smile: :warrior:
What a relief!! Finally I know that Baby J will be here with us and safe. difficult child handled this whole thing pretty well, she really had no choice, but under the circumstances handled it like an adult. :bravo:
I am cautiously hopeful about difficult child. She has been sober 60 days. :bravo: :bravo:
There is still a long way to go....
But, for now, I'm happy, relieved, thankful!!!!! :smile:

Thank You for all the support!

that is wonderful! I know at some point we may have to go for custody of kaleb as his mom is constantly threatening to move out of state with her latest boyfriend.
I am glad you are set for at least the next two years!

Hurray for you, Baby J, and difficult child!! :warrior:
So glad to hear it's settled and difficult child didn't cause you worse heartache. Hope she can use the 24 months to really change her life and be ready to become a full-time parent when the time comes!!
