Baby daddy?!?!

I finally got word today that R is in fact the girl's BF. I knew it. SR looks just like him. So now the judge has to establish him as the legal father, which may take place 6/24. Once that happens their aunt might be able to take them home. As you may remember R does not want them, he loves their BM and since her rights have been terminated they can not be in the same household. It's sad, I can't imagine choosing a boyfriend over my children but whatever....they will probably be better off with their aunt.

E (the sw) is calling me tomorrow to let me know if and when the girls will be transitioning to their aunts. As of right now, all we know is that they will definitely be here until the 24th....I'm starting to wrap my head around the fact that they will be leaving...:( I've had a couple good cries but for some reason it just doesn't feel real. Maybe because we don't know exactly when they are going to leave....

If I hear from E tomorrow, I'll post an update.

Adding a Mietz....

Last June a few of my online/bloggy friends had a meet up in Chicago. You have to admit it's a little usual for a group of online friends to make a special trip to a far away city to enjoy a face to face meeting but we did it and we had so much fun. Since then we have been throwing around the idea of another meet up next year in Arizona, maybe we'll see the Grand Canyon together...who knows.
Today A, G and I were lucky enough to meet up with Gordon, Col's husband from Adding a Mietz. He was in a nearby city for business and we hooked up today for a quick dinner before he had to catch his flight. We went to Smokey Bones BBQ and Grill, it was good. We were having such a great time catching up, I almost forgot to take a picture but I didn't so here it is!

Thank you Gordon for hanging out with us. We hope to make the trip to the spring!!! Give Chy a hug and kiss for us and tell Col we missed her!

Not good...

well for us anyway. The girl's BF showed up to court with his sister. From what I was told he does not want custody but he does want to prove his paternity so the girls can go with his sister. This is after he specifically told me he did not want his girls to be with her but things have obviously changed. So even though he missed the court ordered, state paid paternity test in March, the judge pulled some strings and was able to get him the test done yesterday. I'm happy about that because at least we will know either way soon!

I've always believed that God will place the girls where they are meant to be so I have to have faith. If their aunt is going to step up good for her. I just hope and pray the children will be ok. So now we wait again, we wait for the results of the paternity I'm imagining that they are not his.?.?.? But honestly the little one looks a lot like him.

When the social worker was here I could tell she was sad and sorry. I tried to keep my composure until she left but I couldn't my heart was breaking too loudly. I've grown to love my little girls and I will be so sad if...when they leave!

I don't know if adopting through the foster care system is the route we should continue on, I'm going to giving myself a few days to think and talk it over with my husband...

in my boots!!! Today is court for BF. I hope to hear something this afternoon but if not the girls social worker is coming over tomorrow. I don't quite know how to describe my feelings today. I'm kind of in lala-land. I guess the best thing to do is keep myself busy. I'll post when I hear something!
