    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!
