I have good news, and I have good news...

We had another court date today and here is the good news:

We are planning to adopt Peanut! (I realize that this is not very different from the last update you heard about him. But the court system works slowly sometimes and nothing is definite until you sign the papers. We are probably 98% sure this will happen. Good odds!)

Here is the other good news: Cutie is going to be reunified with his father. As we have gone through this process and gotten to know his dad better, we are really happy for this outcome. We feel blessed to have been able to help him turn his life around and we are grateful we could provide a loving and stable home for Cutie when he needed it. There will be a short transition period and then on March 2nd, Cutie will move to his father's home. If everything goes well, we will not see him again. This is hard to think about, but Jason and I are both surprised at how okay we are with this. What a great opportunity it's been! (If things don't go well, he will come back to us. But we are not planning on that.)

Thank you for your love and support for our family. Thank you for helping us to be able to provide this service!

  1. What a bitter sweet day. I'm so happy about Peanut, but crushed that Cutie can't be with you guys and his brother. I hope that's not bad of me to say. You are so positive and strong. What an inspiration. Love you!

  4. I am so happy that you have a positive attitude about Cutie, I am glad you are comforted about his transition, it wasn't long ago that it was not the case. I am so happy for your news about Peanut though.

  9. When I saw that you had good news I got butterflies. We are so excited for your family. I am so happy that Peanut will be part of your family. Although we will miss seeing the darling Cutie, it is amazing that with your support he will be with his father. You guys were a huge part of that and of cutie's life. You are a real inspiration and great example.

  10. It's bittersweet... but you're probably ok with it because it's what is supposed to happen and you know he is going to be loved.
