WELL.......NO Ruling......yet

Yea, you heard me right. I could not believe it either when the agency called late last evening. Everything went down as it should and everyone showed up that was supposed to. I just can not fathom how they could bring everyone together; our foster mom, Kinsey, our attorney, and PGN, and still do not make a final verdict right there. We were told that now the judge(since she has heard both sides) will go back to her "chambers" and make a final ruling and write up the report. They are hoping to get this next week, but we will see---a week to them usually means a month or 2. Our attorney feels VERY confident that things went well in the hearing, but he really has nothing to base it off of, because NO case has ever gone this route, not having the 2nd illegal BMI. But he did say the judge was very happy to see the connection we had to Kinsey; visits, pictures, video, etc. I also know our sweetie was as good as gold all day, smiling and waving saying hi to everyone, and it was a LONG day for her. The hearing started over 2 hours late and they were there about 4-5 hours, so they were there about 7-8 hours total. So we still don't know where we will go next, but I guess at least our case is being worked on. Thank you everyone for all your prayers, and we could still use them...

It sounds like the hearing went really well! That is great that everyone was there and the judge has what he needs to make a ruling. Hoping that happens sooner than you expect. How frustrating that it didn't happen yesterday but it does seem like you made a good step forward.

Oh, how frustrating! I am praying that there will actually be a ruling NEXT WEEK and that it is favorable! Kudos to Kinsey for hanging in there during her long appointment! She knows what it takes to get home to her sweet family! CUTE! Still praying, praying, praying!

Your song on your blog is perfect, by the way!! :) LOVE IT!

UGH! How frustrating! Though, I suppose it should be no surprise given how unorganized this process is right now. Sigh...I REALLY hope the judge makes the final ruling next week. It sounds like the hearing went wonderfully, now just wait for the judge to confirm what everyone else already knows...Kinsey needs to come home.

Oh Brittney I am sorry things didn't go as well as we all were expecting but I am sure all of our prayers will work and Kinsey will be heading home very soon!
Your baby really knows how to handle her cuteness! :)
