Baby Update... Part 1

I'm so sorry it has taken me so long to post!!! I was in court from 9am until after 3pm, then went to work. So, here's a brief (kinna) recap of what all went down. {Forgive me because I will be typing as if you all know your way around Houston and surrounding cities. lol}

1. Babe hadn't heard from his step sister until THIS MORNING! So, I had to wake up earlier than my alarm {which pissed me off} so that we could go get her from Baytown. I live in Spring! So, we went to get her and went downtown to the court. We got there after 9, the time they tell you to be there.

2. We sat in the court room until 12:15pm. There was one case in there that took over an hour, so when they were done, the judge went to take his "hour" lunch. So we went to go eat.

3. The bailiff gave Meagan {step sister} the papers concerning the case. The social worker had lied about EVERYTHING!!! And when I say EVERYTHING, I mean EVERYTHING!!! And I can NOT stand liars! {Needless to say, when we finally did see her, we were looking her upside her head!!!} She said that she tried multiple times to call Babe and left him messages {lie, cause his mailbox is always full}. Said she tried to visit Meagan. {lie.} On and on, everything was a dang lie!

4. We get back from lunch. Court was supposed to resume at 1:15pm. They started at about 1:40pm. Then they told us that we would be in the courtroom across the hall. We didn't go before the judge until after 3pm!!! {That's a long story all in itself!}

5. We finally get before the judge. The social worker started trying to tell her lies and Babe shut her up REAL QUICK! {He was already irritated!} The judge asked if he was sure he wanted to have the baby... blah blah. We agreed to a home visit {I guess that's what you call it when the social worker comes to see your house.} And we both agreed to drug tests {which we did today} and background checks.

6. They are trying to set the next court date for June 17, which is FOREVER away! But the judge says she wants to do something before that. So we don't know when it will be. There will be a new social worker which is great cause we didn't like lying Tabitha!

At this point, we really don't know what's going to happen. We're just hoping for the best. I'm glad that we'll have a lil time to get ready for him, if we get him. We are moving in together tomorrow. {Another secret, ooops. lol.} So, we will have time to make it a home for us so when the social worker comes out it DOES look like we're ready to take on the task.

Still sad cause we can't buy baby stuff cause it's all up in the air, but it will come together. Thanks for all of your support, prays, and concerns!!! {Now I gotta try to catch up on what I missed today!!!}

    a full day indeed. But baby steps and good and sure steps. Things are moving and we will keep you in our prayers. June will be here before you know it.
    I hear you on not being able to buy stuff yet. Maybe you can buy one or two to satisfy that need you have and give it as a gift to the baby?
    Hang in there!

    WOW....I know it will all come together according to GOD's plan.  You guys are already doing a tremendous thing by working your butt off trying to save this baby life.  I am glad old Tabitha is off the case, because she got some issues and it's people like that who keep our black children in foster care and they're never placed in a happy loving home.  God has away of doing thing.  Period.  You guys hang in there!!!Smile

    @Tyboyd....That's why people like her who don't care about the outcome of these children should have these positions.  SAD...JUST SAD!!! Then to know she's a lier....Burns me up, so I can only imagine how you and your FI felt!!!

    Tyboyd, I'm glad to hear that you all stuck it out in court today and that you received a blessing for your diligence!  (the social worker being removed)

    I hope they can move that June court date up - but it will all happens as it's supposed to.  Try to be patient so you don't stress out about it.

    WOW, so you and FI moving in together tomorrow?  Good luck girl - let us know how it goes!!!
