Kate. Beautiful baby. She was the baby who never cried...for the first few months. She figured it out. But she is still a wonderful baby. And her hair is beginning to grow back! :-)
Kate's story is somewhat complicated. She was with us for a few months before we got summoned to court. After a strange mix-up both of her parents were taken to jail. They have both since been released, but Kate has not been released back into her mother's custody. Her mother did not intentionally abandon her as first thought. You can read the back story at the previous blog posts about her situation.
Tomorrow, we go back to court. We have been in "holding" since February 2nd. We hope that the judge will declare her plan for reuniting Kate with her mother. We do feel that is what will happen, but the court system here is all about showing power and making people wait. Kate's mom has worked very hard the past months to get herself prepared to take Kate back. She comes to visit as often as she can.
Please pray for a speedy resolution to this case. We would HATE to see Kate go, but I know she ultimately deserves and needs to be with her mother who deeply cares for her and will work to provide for her needs.
