Hello my dear readers!
Guess what? I am going to be a grandmother for the first time ever and am almost jumping out of my skin with excitement!
My beautiful daughter, whom I have blogged so much about in the Marchman Act Sections of this blog is due to have her first baby around December 26th 2013. Below are the 3D sonogram photos she sent me which blew my mind when I saw them.
I have never seen sonogram pictures which show the baby in such detail. These images were taken because my daughter did not realize she was with child until she was almost 5 months. The reason for this is because both she and I have always had very irregular menstrual cycles as well as their duration, so she just thought she was gaining weight along with her companion/baby's father. My daughter will be 6 months pregnant on the 26th of this month, September.
Are you serious? We're what?
Those of you who are wondering if she is still addicted to drugs, the answer is, definitely not! To my delight, after moving away from Tampa and all the negative influences as well as being surrounded with addicts, methadone, and the justice system always threatening her with jail time unless she continued their method of treatment; thus keeping her with her back pressed against the wall by taking away her civil rights, her entire life turned around. I have my daughter back, not the monster who was occupying her body for over a year. Unfortunately, she and the baby are away from me a distance of, 2083 Miles / 3353 Kms.
Still, I wonder if at some point the Marchman Act Drug Court Judge, Jack Espinosa could find it in his heart to rescind the civil warrant for Failure to Appear, then everything will be perfect but he has probably long forgotten us and has no reason to even look into her case file any longer, so the warrant will be in effect for years to come. My 82 year old mother and 85 year old father will never get the chance to hold their first great grandson in their arms. Of course a trip that far for them would be a strain on their health so they will have to be content with photos.
As for me, I aiming to save up to purchase my round trip ticket for around the 21st of December and hopefully be able to arrive in time to assist my daughter with her delivery and stay for a couple of weeks after. This young couple have no experience as parents nor do they have family there who they could count on for help.
For those of you who would like to help welcome the baby, below is the link to the Gift Registry from Walmart which I created for my daughter.
Please keep us all in your prayers. Thank you.
