My request was to cancel all visits pending our next court date which was just around the corner- March 7th to be exact. I was requesting this due to the events from last weekend. The Commissioner granted my request. I am thrilled. I didn’t have to be in court today but I did have to wait all day for the Commissioner to review my paperwork and make a decision. I found out at 3pm and I am breathing easier now.
I submitted over 20 pages of declarations and evidence. It was very strong evidence and I felt hopeful. After the paperwork was submitted, I prayed. My friends prayed. Some of them lit candles, some send positive thoughts & pixie dust and others showered me with text messages and phone calls. I felt surrounded by positivity and love today.
I am celebrating the fact that we have a week of peace. A week of stability. A week where I don’t have to worry about whether or not my daughters are safe. I am thankful to the Commissioner who took the time to read my paperwork and then acted in the best interest of the girls. It is little victories like this that re-fuel me and fill my cup back up. These little victories restore my faith in the system. I feel hopeful again.
Someone recently said that they admire my drive and think that I am inspirational. I don’t feel inspirational. I am a mom and I am doing my job: I am protecting my daughters. I can’t imagine not protecting my daughters. The mere thought of not fighting is something I can’t conceptualize. I will keep fighting with honesty, integrity and my daughters’ best interest at the front of my battle ship. My children and all children deserve to feel safe, happy and secure.
