IT IS OVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We were awarded custody of my two skids last year (EXACTLY one year ago today) for their Mother's neglect and abuse. We filed an ex parte hearing and won! So now it is exactly one year later and we got told this morning that BM signed the paperwork finalizing this mess and we have permanent placement of BOTH stepkids. SD12 gets to choose when/if she see's BM and SS8 goes every other weekend and 4.5 weeks (broken up) in summer. She gets half of Xmas break and 5 days at Easter and every other Thanksgiving. THATS IT!!!!
So, on another note, it is NOT completely over, although custody is. We STILL pay support for the kids and she only has them 4-6 days a month. Stupid but we will work on that later. }:)
