Since 2016, the ride has been a roller coaster type for me and I'm sure it is same for many of you!
So many things has happened from every directions and some directions I did not think would be possible! My son getting arrested and being incarcerated for two years and 8 months before his day in court came, not being able to be part of his new son's life. His first child. Then I recently learned that my son pretty much has terminated his paternal rights once he plead Alford Deal to lesser charge last March. I am not sure if my son knew this or not. This truly break my heart because he has been talking about when he gets out, he wanted time with his son and build a relationship with him. Now it pretty much isn't happening.
We as paternal grandparents had been prevented from having an relationship with our grandson by the maternal grandmother who has temporary custody of our grandson because the Mom was struggling with alcohol but she has straighten up and gave birth to other babies (twins) and is able to keep the twins but fighting to get custody of this child back from her Mom. BUT to my surprise, she just now allowed us to have our grandson for couple of hours this coming Sunday to celebrate his 3rd birthday! We are excited and looking forward that! BUT subconsciously wondering when the other shoe will drop in this.
Praying for everyone here, We all are facing many different struggles but I'm thankful we have this place where we can share and know someone is struggling and can say We are here, we know the pains, frustrations and we know our love for our loved ones!
