So anyone who has been following my posts knows that we have been fighting with my stepdaughters birth mom to follow the court order set forth almost two years ago in re: to holidays. It says that we are to be allowed equal holiday break time, Christmas Day starting at 10am and New Years (New Years alternates every year but the other two are the same every year) BM was refusing to follow the order, we offered 5 diff. options as to how to go about getting to see DD over the holidays and none of the solutions were acceptable to BM. She demanded that we instead have her for 3 non consecutive days out of the entire 14 day holiday break (there is 8 hrs on the road associated with each round trip)
We went to court on Tuesday and the order just came through this morning:
DD will be spending Christmas Day from 10am until New Years Day at 10am with her Daddy and me!!!! Also, all costs *as we are struggling financially and we tried numerous times to settle outside of court* all costs associated with this hearing are to be paid in full by BM!!!! AND! If she doesn't follow this order for any reason she will be placed in contempt of court and penalized by fine, jail time, and/or altered visitation!!!!
Thank you for all of your prayers! Have a Merry Christmas!
