the khloie update

We had court a couple weeks ago and nothing really resulted from it. The potential birth father has not yet taken the paternity test (at least as far as I know). He supposedly made an appointment to do so and the judge said we would reconvene on October 25th. The next step will be to see if he in fact does take it, and what the results are and how that will effect proceedings. The state attorney told the young man in court last time that even if he establishes paternity the state is just going to turn around and request it to be terminated. Where was he for 6 months? He could have signed the paper at the hospital as the father, but he didn't. So, we don't know his intentions, if he even has any.

Utah has a law that a child 2 or under once they are placed in foster care, has to have a permanent placement within 8 months. Khloie will be with us 8 months as of Nov. 11th. A judge can make rulings to extend that, but I don't know why she would. I don't understand other things she has done however, so who's to say how it will all play out.

We feel so peaceful concerning the matter though. I admit that it helps when I don't have to see the family. When I have visits I always feel the weight of the situation. The mom didn't show up for her last visit a week ago Monday. She hasn't given them a number to reach her at, and they don't chase parents down to do what they're supposed to, they expect some effort on their part. She did say that she wanted to relinquish her rights and didn't need to be forced (have the state terminate).

So, we wait for the 25th... more updates to come:) thank you all for your thoughts and prayers!
