We Won!

Picture yourself vividly as winning, and that alone will contribute immeasurably to success. ~Harry Emerson Fosdick

We won!

We won!

Just a quick update after an exhausting day… We prevailed in our day in court!

The judge ruled that my daughter cannot leave the state as it would be detrimental to our relationship…

I’m not sure if her mother will stay in Florida or move as planned and have my daughter live with me for the majority of time…

That will be revealed in the near future, I suppose… What matters is my daughter will continue to live nearby!

Thanks to everyone for the well wishes and support… We’ll be back to answer our messages tomorrow!
