Parental rights were terminated yesterday for the boys mom and for C’s dad. Ax’s dad has to be served, and since we haven’t heard from him since July they will probably not find him and have to publish in the newspaper then we have trial for him. The Aunt in OK is out of the picture-it came back that they can’t go there. It’s all really great news. We are just so much closer to adoption. BUT I am not happy. I feel so bad for their mom. I can’t imagine how she is feeling-she is losing her kids after all. The judge told her she can write them a letter and A and I can read it and decide if it’s something we will give the kids. I just can’t even imagine how she must be feeling-She was told yesterday that she will only see her kids one more time(for a goodbye visit) and that she can write them one letter they might not even get. How sad. Ax is going to be devastated when he hears-that’s his mom! It’s not my day to be happy-not yet. It’s weird telling people because I am feeling completely opposite than they’d expect, so I try and be happy but I’m just really really sad for that mom. I know, she didn’t do what she needed, she had her chance, but it’s still a sad day-so unbelievably sad.
