I was so busy with legal issues having to do with with my glama girls and with Russ's healh issues, he now has a permanent picc line for IV's...that he will be getting every Friday at the Hospital, so I will drive them both to Enumclaw for this weekly. I will post an image of the week Tomorrow.
So the Court hearing for Temporary Custody of the girls will be on Monday...tomorrow the 23rd. It has been a very intense time for our family. Last week Kasandra's attorney called our attorney and asked Suellen if there was any way possible to settle this out of court. So the two attorneys put their heads together and came up with this deal: Kasandra would be named "Primary Custodial Parent"(her attorney wanted that), That each parent would have the girls every other month-for a whole month, and that Daniel would pay all airfare ( her attorney wanted that), and that Daniel would continue to pay for Kasandra's car in lieu of child support.
We countered with: Daniel named "Primary Custodial Parent" (since this is the Girls Residential State, that they still have jurisdiction in), and we don't mind Daniel having the girls every other month for a whole month, however, since Kasandra is the one that caused all this mess and uprooted the girls out of state...we dont feel Daniel should be responsible for all the airfare, so we are asking for "Shared Airfare", and Daniel is fine with paying for her car payments in lieu of Child support.
All of this would be in affect until the Final Hearing In September of 2010. The attorneys wanted our thoughts on all of this, before presenting it to Kasandra. We still haven't heard back from anyone since Thursday. And the hearing is to take place tomorrow already. We'll see what happens!
We need those girls here...Kasandra has taken those girls to a place that she herself has so vividly and grossly described as unhealthy physically and emotionally for the girls. She has shared things about her family members that make me fearful for my girls to be around them, for fear of what could be done to them. When Daniel and I flew to Texas to see the girls they kept telling me "Ama don't leave me here in Texas...I want to live in my yellow house in Covington" How sad is that, she kept telling me how her mom is always screaming at her and hitting and pinching her? The girls want to come home so Badly!
Kasandra and her family and friends all claimed that Daniel lied in his declaration of how filthy Kasandra and her family are...they submitted pics. of their home. I say... "It is very easy to tidy up and then take pics. to prove to the Judge/Court how tidy they are" but I found pics in Kasandra's MySpace account in her "We're in TX now" album, that show just how filthy of a home they are presently living in, when they aren't trying to prove to the judge/court that Daniel is lying, this is what her mothers house looks like and this is what Kasandra's home always looked like when she lived up here. In spite of Daniel repeatedly asking her to do better at keeping house for their girls, she never did, so Daniel would go to work all day and then come home and clean house too. Attached below is a picture of the Filth she has my grandchildren living in, they don't even have a proper, clean place to sleep at night. We need to get these girls out of this filth, they always have runny noses, coughs, and red watery eyes, I am convinced because of the Unsanitary Conditions that they live in. We submitted these images to the court.
"The images below is their environment in Tx...How could a mother allow their child to crawl around in this? Kasidy is crawling around on a Plywood floor, with the possibility of slivers, ugh! And the vacuums back there are obviously not being used...just being stored in that filthy hallway. And look at where they are sleeping, doesn't look to safe to me, things could fall on them and it is just plain filthy." MY POOR GLAMA GIRLS!
