sat in court for 7 hours today during our trial.
wish i'd have had a lawyer only because i had to present myself first and i had no clue what to say. thank god the judge was understanding and while she didn't direct me, she was patient and kind and even asked some of the witnesses questions that i should have asked but didn't, questions that helped my case.
she will make her decision next week.
if i had to guess, im thinking she WILL go with supervised visitation. when i had to explain what happened to my daughter, i cried. when my ex told her what he did, there was zero inflection in his tone, he spoke matter of factly about it. plus, his mom only further validated my argument that she puts her son's interests before the children's by saying that my child had a "gut wrenching cry" when she was a baby (thus essentially blaming the SBS on her) and admitting that when she came up to the state we were living in at the time her main goal was to get him a lawyer, she checked on her grandchild last.
but, i dont think the visits will continue under my supervision. i think she will grant one of his family members supervision.
that is just a guess though. anyway, that's my update. i really thought it would be decided today, SIGH....
