Natasha Calls!!!

Just thought you all would be interested in knowing that Natasha called. She called a week ago (the Sunday before Christmas) and I wasn't home. Clint answered and she asked for me. When he said I wasn't home she said "would you like to hear MY baby's voice?" Clint told her that she was unbelievable, and that she just used people for money. She then said that she couldn't believe what we had put about her on our blog, (like any of it isn't true). She also said that this was HER baby. He has her blood running through his veins, he looks like her other kids, as if this was something we were disputing. After she badgered him some more, he hung up on her.

There are a few things about this conversation that strike me as funny. First of all, we would never have started this blog if this battle hadn't happened. I would have just gone about life, mailing Christmas cards, and never saying a negative word about her. Second, OF COURSE he has her blood running through his veins. I never once suggested that he was ours biologically...only that we love him, and he is ours in our hearts.

Just thought that those of you following the blog would like to know about this little development. I hope you all had a good Christmas. We had the best one we could, considering there was a hole in it. Kade did really well, and we are thinking that we will get him into counseling when school resumes. He needs a little help that we don't know how to give. He is still angry and very concerned about Talon. He prays that he is safe every night.

Wow. The nerve. It is truly shocking that someone could be so hateful. I don't have any words to say except that I am sorry!!

hi..you dont know me. but i have been following your story. i work for a adoption agency in Utah (NO not the one you went through!) and that is how I heard about your story. My heart goes out to you and i think about you often. I cant imagine what you are going though. We have adopted 2 kids, and no its not MY blood that is in them ,but if it was, I would feel no different. They are MY babies. Keep fighting, dont give up and I hope and pray things turn out for you.

Unbelievable! Thanks for the update...wish it wasn't so infuriating to read. I am very inspired by your strength and restraint. you all continue to be in our prayers just as Talon is in Kade's!

How unbelievable!! I am curious to know if she now has some type of custody of Talon if she was able to call with him nearby. We are still praying for your family.

That just breaks my heart! I can't believe people can be that down right mean. Satan sure roams the earth.

Wow, Wow, Wow. I can't even imagine what you are going through and have to continue to have things like that happen to make it worse. She got Talon back, now why would she keep trying to hurt you. You already had your hearts ripped out, that someone who hasn't adopted and had it go wrong has NO IDEA how it feels. We know, we know...the birthmom felt betrayed, lied to and blah blah blah. But WHATEVER!!! she should do what's right for Talon. And if SHE feels that it is better for him to be with her, then she needs to move on and let you guys grieve. I am so sorry again that you are going through this. Again we pray for you and your family.

Oh, Heather!
That is mean, cruel, and hateful. I can't believe she did that. I'm so sorry!

She sounds like she's 12. She is manipulative, deceitful, and lacks morals on so many levels.

My heart aches for Clint that he even had to deal with that. How can she get away with calling & harassing your family? I hope that counseling will help Kade work through the grief he is feeling. It would probably be a good idea to have some sessions for each of you. This kind of grief is so multi-layered!!!!

I feel badly for your son. We too had a young child. We adults can handle it, but the children are deeply wounded and it is our parental obligation to attend to the needs of our child left behind.It is not fair to them to have their lives in chaos. We gave our child our undivided attention and love to heal. I pray your son can heal with therapy and immersed in your love.

I can't believe how hateful and hurtful some can be. For her to claim to be a mother and yet be so cruel. Unbelievable!! We continue to pray for your family and the safe return of Talon. May Heavenly Father bless you with the strength to continue to fight for Talon. The only place He belongs is back in your arms.

Please let me know if there is anything I can do. ((HUGS))
