After almost five months, my son was finally reunited with his baby daughter! After many visits to our lawyer, and one court order, access has been set until July, when the custody and access will be settled for good. We are all beyond happy to have our sweet baby back with us. She will be with us several weeknights and alternating Saturdays.  It has been a long hard fight, and it isn’t over yet. I’ll never forget the look of despair in my son’s eyes, as he tried again and again to see his baby. Hopefully those days are behind us! MacKensie is now 8 months old and is adorable.

Holding his baby for the first time in 5 months.

MacKensie was understandably shy at first. She loves playing with Daddy’s phone.

And here she is a few short visits later. All smiles and giggles. She sure loves her Daddy.

Now that MacKensie will be spending more time with us, (in a few weeks she will be spending a few days at a time) I have been busy sewing her summer wardrobe! I will post the little dresses I have made for her in the next few days.

I have missed blogging so much!  But with the stress and heartache I just couldn’t bring myself to write cheerful posts. I hope to blog at least once a week now. Even if it is just to post pictures of our little sweetie!

Thanks for stopping by!



  1. Oh Anne, I am so happy for you and your family to have your gorgeous grandchild back in your life. I was sad that there was so much stress and heartache, but glad the outcome is so wonderful for you all.
