Letter.

Dear Lizzy,

I talked to your social worker today. Things seem to look like your legal parents will not be able to parent you. I get scared, especially about your legal dad, because his intentions are not good. I thank God that HE is in control and has kept you safe from him so far.

Your mom told everyone that she was leaving, she told the social worker that you were with me and that I would take care of you. I wish life would have been different for her. Her mom, your grandma, was a very sick woman and she was not a good mommy to your mom. In comparison your mom did a very good job while you were with her and I am thankful for the things she did and the pictures that she made sure you had before she left.

I hate this and will be so glad when it is over. I will be so glad when you never have to be around that man, your legal dad, ever again. That will truly be one of the happiest days of my life.

Boy little girl does God have His hands on you, your new social worker is working so hard to keep you safe. She is trying to write a very good report so that the judge has to agree with her.
I think she will.

It's coming fast Lizzy, the day you will loose everything and at the same time hopefully gain even more than you have lost. This has been one of the hardest things I have ever been through...I am glad that I got to walk through it with you, I would do it all over again a million times if I knew you needed me to. I'm excited for you. I'm excited for us.

Mommy

I hope that Lizzy can have good memories of her family, just for her sake. The whole situation is heartbreaking.
So excited for you for when it can all be over! Sometimes I think, what will our family even look like when we're no longer considered a "case"??!! :) Much better, I'm sure!
