YAY! I won costody of my 3 year old beautiful little daughter. I revised my signature today and it's her birthday so I had to write this post. I have had temporary custody since January this year, but Final Custody court was December 1st. I had been working extra part-time jobs, saving work bonuses and income tax returns and have had 3 different roommates all while dealing with my ulcerative colitis in order to pay way way too much child support and afford a lawyer and I have done it all for her...
I am so relieved b/c I was stressing over the fact that I could lose her. I stressed thinking about the environment she would be exposed to if I had lost the battle. And needless to say we are both attached to eachother and she is my inspiration and motivation in life. I have been feeling better and better b/c my UC inflamation is obviously improving and maybe it is because I am so happy and relieved to have her and bring her up my way. You all wouldn't believe how much she steals the spinach and brocolli off my plate after she finishes hers.lol
She helped (or I should say did most of the work) when we baked a caked yesterday. She is so happy with life and such a delight for me. I just had to let you all know.
