Thank-you everyone for all of your kind comments, and prayers after I posted this last week. I am overwhelmed by your support.
I thought I would let you know how it's going.
Our case is closed and has a big fat inconclusive stamped on it. Which means they were unable to determine for certain that we neglect our children but since it's impossible to determine for certain that we don't apparently, they are reluctant to say unfounded in case it comes back later to bite them in the butt. But they didn't place our case in the central index for the Department of Justice/ Child Abuse.
We are currently investigating the possibility of appealing it by going over her head, but we have little hope that much will change.
We aren't moving for now. We can't really afford though we could make it happen if we really needed to. It feels paranoid to do something so drastic. We reserve the right to change our minds on that though.
And while the door closing on the GH's career has been painful, and disappointing, there are some interesting windows that have opened up in this past week that we are looking through, sticking our heads out and tasting the air. Once again we feel a bit overwhelmed with choices. And we're counting our blessings.
I'll keep you posted.
