Through an incredible turn of events that began with a woman in Santa Barbara reading my book, I was put in contact with an ah-ma-zing local attorney who may be able to assist me with my upcoming trial. I have been self-represented for the past 3.5 years and by most accounts, I have done well on my own. The two-day trial on April 10th and 11th is fast approaching and to have an attorney in my corner would be the answer to my daily prayers.
I have worked SO hard to get to the place I am right now. I just need that one person (with a law degree!!!) who will believe in me. I have fought really hard to obtain a new parenting evaluation and hope to have the results within a week. I feel that this trial is the final piece to my puzzle and while I am not naive enough to think that this is the end—I am hopeful enough to think that this will set the foundation for any future issues in our case.
I spoke to this attorney by phone today and I am incredibly optimistic. I could not have been aligned with a more competent attorney had I advertised my specific needs on a flashing billboard. I had a good feeling from the moment that we started talking and was literally jumping up and down when I got off the phone. We are meeting again on Thursday afternoon. I am trying to stay grounded in the reality that there is still a lot to be worked out when it comes to the financial aspect of this decision. You may see me holding a car wash in front of my house (the weather is warm in California!) to raise legal funds. In the meantime, I am going to hang onto the words of wisdom from my new angel friend in Santa Barbara:
Remember, you have an enormous momentum in the spiritual realm right now, as thousands of women are reading your site and cheering for you. Don’t underestimate the collective power of intention. Now is the time! Everything will work out in the end. If it isn’t working out, then it isn’t the end. ###
