I'm so glad to hear little Kaelyn is doing well! I know she's getting lots of vibes and prayers from the TCS crew, and we all know how potent those are! Please do let us know anything you need, I'm sure we can find a way to provide!

So good to hear that Kaelyn is doing well and pooping.

With all that has happened you are doing amazingly well. It's good that Amber came to you in your dream. I know it's confusing but to me it just confirms that she is there for you and Kaelyn and always will be. Be sure to tell Kaelyn how much her mommy loved and wanted her.

I agree with others that a lawyer is needed. It's good that your parents have started that process. Ideally Stan can be persuaded to relinquish his parental rights so that you can adopt Kaelyn if that is what you want.

I'm also thinking of all Amer's pets. The poor babies- they don't understand where their mommy is/ I hope you can help them to calm down and eventually adjust to the new situation.

Many hugs to all of you.

John, I don't know what else I can add. All I can do is offer my thoughts and prayers and let you know I'm here for you. I'm glad your parents are contacting a lawyer and I hope you receive good news soon.

I am planning on makng a shopping trip in the next few days to get some things together for you then it will be shipped out soon. Thankyou for posting the things you already have.

Things sound like they're looking up a bit Hang in there handsome- we are all praying for you. Also- do you need anything for Amber's animals? food, anything like that?

Well Im back and I slept for a couple hours at the hospital. There's nothing really to do there except talk to Amber's family and I every time I see her sisters it just makes me so upset. So I ended up crashing on a couch. I did get to hold Kaelyn again but she was sleeping at first then she started to cry. She has a very loud cry. We will have to go to court and get me legal gaurdianship of Lava Girl for me to get her. DCF has already been to the hospital and they are putting Lava Girls case up as soon as possible. They want her to go home with someone who knew Amber instead of a foster home. So it should from what the case worker said be dealt with before she is let out. The doctors say she has to stay in the hospital for at least 2 weeks. Maybe longer if she cant get the hang of breathing. She breathes very weird and is on oxygen.They gave her a bath because the nurses didnt clean her off very well and she still had some dried blood and stuff on her. So I sorta got a pic of that. Not the greatest its zoomed up and taken thru a window. Then I got a pic of her before they put all her wires back on her.
Lava Girls first bath. Showing of her skinny little body. Her face maybe chubby with a double chin but her body is super thin.

After her first bath.

Thats all of the pictures that even turned out semi good. Sorry. Her Grandma is taking a ton of pictures though.

Thank you for all of the updates, John. You are a strong man.
And Kaelyn, she's beautiful! She's probably one of the cutest babies I've ever seen!

I'm still a newbie here but I've been following along with everyone here, and I wanted to express to you and all of Amber's loved ones my greatest sympathies. Wishing you my best thoughts, and I hope Kaelyn comes home with you.

Kaelyn is looking great!

For a premmie, she really is quite big!

Amber did a wonderful job of carrying her for the last 8 months

Thankyou soo much for the update! She is such a beautiful little one! I am glad to hear DCF is trying to resolve things as soon as possible. My prayers are with you that things are worked out so that you are able to adopt her

John, she still gets more gorgeous with every picture. I'm still praying for you and her. She deserves a man as wonderful as you to take care of her. God Bless you!!
post #75 of 132
Wow look at that head of hair!!!! She is absolutely gorgeous
post #76 of 132
I am so glad she is doing OK and I am sure the problems will be sorted out soon. On the legal side, it would be fantastic if you can take her home from the hospital - later it could be a big plus if you can show that the hospital recognised you as the appropriate carer. It is hard to have to think about these things when you are in shock, but it has to be done. Good vibes still coming your way.
post #77 of 132
John shes so beautiful, I hope everything works out and you get to take the sweet little baby home with you. Im sure its meant to be, everything will be ok
post #78 of 132
John my sympathies go out to you. I wish you the best emotionally and spiritually, and I know that all the right things will happen with Lava Girl. I'm not familiar with the whole story, but from what I read, I just know that you are that girls father. There is more to DNA than being a father and you prove that. I have no doubt that you will be the most important person in her life and everything will work out.

Take care and let me be another person to extend a hand if you ever need anything.

Still sending prayers and hugs from Mississippi for you and Kaelyn, I hope that all the legal things get sorted out soon.

You have tons of people here that are behind you.
post #80 of 132
I'm hoping and praying that you get custody of Kaelyn soon. You are doing an amazing job with all of this.
post #81 of 132
Well first off sorry again for your loss. If you don't mind me asking how early was the baby? I am very familiar with having a premie, my Kaela was one. Born 3 months early and only weighed a pound and a half and now she is 3 and as healthy as can be. I only type this in hopes that it will ease your mind a little. Your whole situtation is just heartbreaking. And I wish you all the best. The docs told me when I my daughter was born that girls are tougher and she certainly proved them right. Again, you're in my prayers.
post #82 of 132
John I am going to give you a bit of advice on the clothes. You can get premmie clothes but after say her first month or so always buy the clothes bigger than her actual age because they grow fast and they won't last her too long anyway. Except shoes they are sized different. But on the clothes lets say she is 2 months old then you need to buy clothes for about 4 months old. but they will come in the 3-6 month anyway.
post #83 of 132
Thank you so much for the update, John. Kaelyn is such a cutie, and she'll be nice and plump in no time! I certainly hope that you get custody of her!
post #84 of 132
She is so beautiful. Brandon had to stay in the hospital for 2 weeks after he was born because he was 6 weeks early. Don't worry, she'll start breathing well. At least she is just on oxygen, Brandon was on a vent.

I'm praying that you will get custody of Lava Girl. You deserve her and she needs you
post #85 of 132
It sounds like the legal side is progressing fairly well. I will keep you in my prayers that it all works out. Not surprising on the lung issues as that seems to be the last part to develop.

Thanks for the update.
post #86 of 132
Thanks for the update John! Sounds like things are progressing well for her. she is such a little doll! I'm glad to hear what you said about them wanting her to go home to someone she knows and not foster care. She needs to be with her Daddy! And thats YOU!
post #87 of 132
what a cutie!!!

I'm really glad to hear that things are going well with adopting Kaelyn. You WILL be a great father.
post #88 of 132
She looks great John. I know its hard seeing her with all the wires. my youngest was 7 weeks early and in NICU for 2 weeks. But she looks good and healthy and thats all that matters. I am so glad to hear that there are people (family and government) behind you on this. Lava girl deserves to have you in her life full time.

I know it can't be easy. Just try to remember what Amber said to you in your dream, She will always be with you and the baby, I really believe that. Please remember we are all here for you.
Ditto for me.....Bobbie

You are a very special man. I can tell from your posts. My prayers are with you.
