Update.....More Waiting

The court date we had been awaiting has been rescheduled.  As it turns out, this is a good thing where Kane and I are concerned.  It had only just come to our attention on Thursday that additional information concerning our daughter's illness would most likely prove advantageous to our case.  This will require more research and will involve my composing and compiling several documents, and had our court date not been rescheduled, there would not have been enough time to do it the justice it requires.  In addition, I came down with a nasty head cold on Thursday and felt miserable and spent the weekend in bed.

I would have given it my best shot, of course, but now we have three weeks' time in which to get it accomplished.  God works in mysterious ways..........  To say that I am relieved would be an understatement, to say the least.

Thank you all for your continued support  :)

From Kane:

Thank you to all those who have given advice and an ear to lean on during an extremely stressful time in our lives. What a week it has been, first I get a cold and then I hand it off to Sadie. She took care of me when I was sick and I got to return the favor yesterday. Suffice it to say we have taken a hiatus for a few days from the dynamic, but we are both on the mend and I am feeling HOH-y again.

Back to our situation:  everything is on hold for now due to circumstances beyond our control. Things being delayed is a good thing because now we can regroup and get all our paperwork in order. As Sadie has so eloquently written in her latest post, the mental health care system in our country is broken. I know all those in blog land have no idea who we are, but we are good people. I love our daughter as if she were my own biological child; people have commented that we even look alike. She is mentally ill.  This is not a subjective statement; it is a fact. Some of this is biochemical, neglect in the birth home, and adolescence.  We cannot ensure her safety or ours if she were to come home now. This breaks our hearts, as we have tried so hard to get her the help she so desperately needs, but the system doesn't care about this. Their agenda is clear -- get the child back in the home and write her off their case list. This is due to the fact that there are not enough services available to meet the need.  We cannot control the system, only prepare ourselves for any eventuality. 

I can control one thing -- when Sadie gets another spanking, and I have a hankering for a spankering. I am going to work out after I write this, have to get my spanking arm in shape again. Thank you to all who have given and shown your support and kept us in your prayers; it means a lot to us.



  1. I know you have tried to explain to me multiple times how things 'work' there, but I still don't understand how they can put you through HELL, drag you through the mud, and then give you back your daughter. I mean if you really *were* neglectful parents why on God's green earth would they want her to go back there. So ridiculous.

    As for the spanky stuff....GOOD GRIEF KANE! LOL . I'd be more upset for Sadie, if I didn't know she craved and needed it.

    You are never far from my thoughts

  2. Hey Sadie and advice for colds and to ward off future colds...lots of vitamin C and zinc!

    No advice as far as your daughter is concerned but am sending lots of prayers and positive energy for a wonderful outcome.


  3. Gosh, Sadie, I'm glad you guys have extra time but so sorry that your family is in this situation. Lots of prayers coming your way.

  4. Keep working that arm out Kane! I know it doesn't make a lot of sense sometimes, but you guys can keep us sane with your attention and strength.

    Hang in there you two. I know this is hard and it sounds like it is a really good thing that you have some extra time on your hands. G

    Get better too. :)

  5. Sadie, I know what a stressful time this is for you So glad Kane is taking good care of you. I'm anxiously awaiting an update on your daughter. You know your family is in my prayers. Hoping this time of waiting is continuing to be helpful!

    Love, Clara

  6. Well I am glad that you got the extra three weeks to work on the information that you need to put together. {{{hugs}}} It just sucks that you have to fight so hard just to get your daughter the help that she needs. :( Um, might want to tell Kane not to get the arm too in shape! ;)

    {{{hugs}}} EsMay

  7. Hi Everybody.......hope you don't mind me addressing you all in this one comment, but I haven't had much time to be on the computer lately. I feel bad that's it's been a week since you all wrote, and I'm just getting back to you now. I appreciate all your support, as always!


  8. Sending lots and LOTS of positive thoughts and prayers your way. I'm sorry youre both going through such a a hard time, and I really hope things start getting better soon. You guys seem to really be there for each other, and that's so important. Keep it up. :)
