I received a phone call today from the police detective on Jacob's case. The medical examiner's report is in. What an answer to prayer! She said the last one she waited on took 8 months! She got Jacob's in less than 3!
The findings were not what we wanted. Jacob did die from asphyxiation. The dresser was the cause of death and it was ruled an accident. Several people had told us there was no bruising, and led us to believe it was his heart...not this. I really wanted it to be his heart. I had no control over his heart.
The detective was very kind and told me not to blame myself, complimented our family profusely, asked about Justin, was VERY kind, but unfortunately, her words were of little comfort.
On the bright side (and I say this as I am trying to breathe) we are finished with the wait. The allegation with DHS will be cleared up and closed by the end of the week. I do not have to worry about it intefering with S&J's adoption or anything else, for that matter.
Please pray for us on Thursday. I will be going to court for S&J. Bio dad is scheduled to relinquish his rights, but paternal grandfather is also scheduled to show up to court...we really are not sure what he wants, but he does claim he was not notified of S&J being in DHS custody. Really???? Two years and not one of your family members (not even your son) told you anything???? Prayers, please.
