Well, it's official...Richard's mother has requested to get an order of protection (a.k.a. restraining order) against Richard. We called the courts today and there is nothing currently in place to keep Richard away from the kids, but Richard has to go to the courthouse next week and give his side of the story; basically he has to explain why this protective order is ridiculous!Personally, I don't think that the order will stick, since Richard hasn't done anything to cause such a reaction.
Just as a side note, we really appreciate all of the support that you guys have given us though this tough time. We really feel that we are very blessed to have so many friends and family members who care about us so much. You guys ROCK!!!
