My 13th Half-Nekkid Thursday

A quick update before I get to the HNT pic...The PPR went okay, I guess. Caseworker again stated that DHS wants Andy placed with us. Bad news? They are still saying that nothing can be done as far as the adoption on the girls until things are decided about Andy. Even though the judge already okayed it. Apparently she can OK it all she wants but the State office won't proceed until placement on all the kids is decided.

That made no sense to me. Since when is DHS higher than a judge's decision??? We finally got ahold of our lawyer today and we will be going in to see him on Friday to discuss the case. Maybe he'll be able to do something regarding the adoption, I don't know. Also, the adoption is not going to cost us anything, but we found out that for him to help us fight for Andy, it's going to cost...and come out of our pockets. We will at least need him for the mediation hearing. I don't know how much it will cost, but if we can't afford him or get something worked out, I don't know what we will do. Might have to end up giving Andy up.

Anyway, I know y'all are here for HNT, but I wanted to post a bit of an update for those who cared.

This week's HNT is what I consider to be my best feature. Lately they are very tired! So here ya go.....My eyes! BTW, this is without makeup...not even mascara. You should see 'em when they're all dressed up! LOL

Chin up kiddo.
Everything will work itself out, although I do agree that it seems strange that the judge's order isn't higher than the State office.

The Persian said...

Wow what beautiful eyes!!!

Thanks for your advice on my blog..I haven't the money right now to persue a reduction and to tell the truth my family is helping me out for now to make ends meet, so in that way they are helping them also!

As far as claiming one of the kids, it's totally legal..as long as I contribute at least 50% of their support, which I definitely do.

Thanks again!
Happy HNT!!

Kimberly said...

Happy HNT--

Tommy Gunn said...

MamaK, the first word that flashed inmto my little peas brain when I saw your eyes was "Catwoman" I don't know why. Even when I was reading your post (good luck by the way) I felt your eyes following me and in my peripheral vision, they looked like a cat's. And might I say, they are the most beautiful shade of Jade. HHNT Doll.

Sending thoughts and prayers your way that the whole adoption thing works out and you get to keep Andy.

Professor Fate said...

I agree with everyone else - great eyes. Now, let them rest. There is plenty of time to worry and fret after a nap.

Happy HNT.

Evilicious Blonde said...

WOW!!! Absolutely gorgeous eyes.

Happy HNT!

FunkyB said...

You really do have beautiful eyes.

As for the adoption issues, it never ceases to amaze me how stupid red tape can keep needy kids out of good homes.

I hope everything goes well, for you and for the kids.

HHNT

~TVS said...

Wow, someone could write a song about those eyes! Wait, there's that one by Sugarloaf. Is that about you?
Happy HNT!

Yeah, him. said...

The eyes always do have it!
Happy HNT!!

Andria said...

Wow! The color of your eyes is amazing!
HHNT!

Hope something gets worked about Andy without it costing too much. :-(

Thanks for commenting on my HNT!

Midwestern City Boy said...

The DHS does not like to break up kids in the family (which actually is commendable). They are probably as frustrated with Andy's foster parents you are. Hopefully they'll help persuade the judge to see it your way.

You have amazing eyes. Happy HNT.

Chickie said...

Undressed, your eyes are lovely!

I hope all gets squared away with your family situation soon!

Mel Chickk said...

Beautiful eyes. Very pretty color.

Good luck with the kids!

Happy HNT!

Im sorry that you are tired but, your eyes are lovely still! Happy HNT

Marilyndrew said...

I searched all the way back to your very first post to find out how your child saga started.

I think it's wonderful that the kids are so important to you and that you're doing everything you can to do what you think is best for them. People like you save the kids whose own parents aren't resposiable enough to take care of their own children. (was I tactful? I tried)

Good luck with everything. I'm sure you'll have your own biological child one day but until then, you're doing just as much, if not more for these other children and strangers like me who are in awe of your love and committment.

Lance said...

Hnt is fun, thanks for the comment the other day. I appreciate them all very much.

Brian said...

They eyes have it and I'm a sucker for eyes.

BTExpress said...

Your eyes are beautiful even without the make up.
