Earlier this afternoon, Troy received a phone call from our lawyer. It seems that nothing really happened. Sorry to disappoint. Matthew was court appointed a lawyer who will represent his best interest. Beyond that we were given a new court date.

June 8.

Yes, you read that right. 34 days from now. It's awesome on so many levels because, well, I'm the world's most patient person learning more about leaning on my Father and not on my own understanding.

Really though, it's okay. I'm going to spend the next month pretending that we'll always be one happy family, loving on this baby, and hoping for the best.

We don't know yet if we'll be going to CA for the next hearing or not. At this point we don't think we need to be there but we'll see as the date gets closer.

Thank you all so much for your support!


  1. Thanks for the update! I find myself checking your blog compulsively throughout the day anytime anything big is going on. So if there are 100 new views from today alone, half are probably mine, lol.

  2. Dear CA Legal System,

    Thank you for being utterly worthless. Thank you for spending valuable time and money to accomplish nothing. You're really cool.

  3. Good luck.

    I love Jon's comment. As the MO court system is the EXACT SAME.

    All they do is push it out and all that accomplishes is more money out of your pocket.

    I'll be praying for you.
