Well, I guess it was a positive that our case was actually HEARD today :) It became very clear after the CM testified that this was not going to be quick and easy. The GAL's lawyer was there today and made the CM account for lots of things that were not completed and made it clear that the CM didn't really know her stuff.
The judge (who is very pro-family) commented that this child has been with us for a year and half and NOW the aunt/uncle are interested???? I was very happy to hear that. Uncle tried to chime in and was shut down very quickly. Oh...bio-Dad never showed up.
Next Uncle was called to the stand. That was surprise! The GAL's lawyer interrogated him and he was lost on dates and had no clue! He backpedaled about lies he has told and said that the person (who was not there) was lying. The GAL immediately asked for a continuance rebuttal against what the uncle just said. SIGH! She continued to ask questions.
Then I was called to the stand!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I was not told this would happen and certainly did not expect it. I was the only person to know all the details(thank you Holy Spirit!!)...when the original visits were, when they made contact with the CM again, when the visits started again, and when overnights started. I know the judge took note of that :)
SOOOOOOOOOOO......................we wait another 22 days till Oct 1st when the hearing will be continued. The aunt/uncle walked out FURIOUS that the judge wouldn't even listen to any of their banter and saying "if we are such bad parents then why do we have the other two?" I walked out FRUSTRATED and THRILLED all at once! I want a decision to made NOW but I will soak up any additional days with my Baby...that's for sure!!!!
