I know you all have been waiting for an update, and Im sorry to say that there is very little to report. Jeff had the boys for the first week of the Christmas break, but the second week of the Christmas break fell during his usual weekend with the boys which means extended time away from them. He will see them this Thursday night for the first time since December 28. And will not get them for a weekend again until Friday the 18th.
As far as further court proceedings, much hinges on Dr. Albritton, the psychological custody evaluator. Until he has completed his study of both children and parents as well as close friends that are directly involved in the daily lives of these kids, we are sort of at a standstill.
Please pray for him to be wise, thorough and motivated to focus on this case so that things can begin to move faster. Every day that remains the same is another day of abuse in the lives of these kids. The profile and sensitivity of the issue at hand and the media attention towards transgender equality has blinded a number of professionals from applying their training, skill and common sense. We hope that Dr. Albritton will not fall victim to the same fear and boldly proceed with recommendations to assure their safety.
The only good thing about this time is that it allows Jeff and his attorney to really work on a game plan and to gather both legal and financial support to prepare for the trial that will inevitably be very large and very expensive.
Momentum is obviously down due in part to the holidays and to the lack of media attention.
Please remember that although I am a 3rd party journalist and can talk about my first hand experience, Jeff is still forced to hold his tongue and must be very cautious about what he says. This makes print media a safer forum for the time being and we are hopeful that some new articles will surface in the coming days.
Thanks to all your support and assistance, both Alliance Defending Freedom and the Thomas Moore society have reached out and offered some assistance to Jeff’s attorney. We aren’t sure to what extent at this point, but it is certainly good news that these large organizations are taking notice.
