Tune in next Tuesday the 18th for some real news on both cases. I hope.
The same attorney who represents S? He also represents K's biological mom. Another S, so that's confusing. Anyway he is in a murder trial and didn't bother to find himself a sub. I hope he gets reamed. I am getting annoyed.
S (Z's bio mom) did show up today. Still pregnant, so what we heard Tuesday was not true.
Cousin's attorney is still deluding himself that he knows dependency law. Right. Our attorney, the county attorney, and the kids' attorneys ALL agree that we should be able to keep both kids - not just because it's morally right but because it is down in black and white in the 366.26 code. How nice that the law and the right thing coincide, huh?
I so hope this baby is born clean. I really really do.
In K's case, we got de facto parent status and prospective adoptive parent status before they trailed the TPR decision. So we are now in the same strong position for him as we are for Z. That's a very good thing.
I am not worried. I am just tired of waiting for this all to be resolved. And worried about taking yet another morning off work for court next week. And sick as a dog - cold sweats, sore throat, raw nose. Staying home in bed today in hopes of getting better before my mom and my sister and her husband arrive tomorrow.
Still fantasizing about G getting a job offer so I can blow off some key things. But the week is marching on with no word.
Funny how the dream job pales in comparison to the kids, though. It's all about perspective, isn't it?
