52 weeks

Well, we were somewhat surprised again at court this morning for what was supposed to be the first day of the termination trial for Baby H's parents. I feel like it was a good surprise though. My biggest concern for Baby H was that we were going to have to put her on an airplane and send her to a distant family member who has never met her if parental rights were terminated. That will not be the case now. Termination has been taken off the table for Baby H's mother as well. She and Baby H's father will be put on a 52 week plan to determine whether or not they are fit to regain custody. It will be a very extensive plan and if they cannot complete it, it will be much easier for a jury to terminate her rights than it would be now. I am thrilled for so many reasons. Number one, my baby girl isn't going anywhere for at least a year. Number two, it gives Baby H's mother a lot more hope than she has had these past few months. Number three, if Baby H's father doesn't stick to the plan, but her mother does, they cannot live together. So, I'm hoping it gives her mother a reason to get away from this man for good.

I'm thanking God that I've got at least 6 more months with Miss A and Baby K and at least a year with Baby H. Who knows what all God will do in a year...
