With a new year spread out before us, we find ourselves coping with the grief of a lost granddaughter and the resolve of insuring that Heavenlee's Law will finally get beyond the stupidity of our legislators in the Indiana General Assembly and finally make it into law.
For 3 years now, we have watched as various permutations of Heavenlee's Law have languished on the floor of the Indiana House and Senate while our lawmakers wring their hands and bemoan the sadness of it all. Meanwhile, nothing gets done...
With this year, we resolve to see that things move forward and that action is finally taken on this issue.
In the prior two years, we were constrained by impediments placed before us by the birth-mother. Those impediments now lie in the grave and we will not be denied our Justice for Heavenlee.
The promise we made to her on Christmas Day, 2009 at her bedside will be honored and fulfilled, especially now, given her passing and the fact that our anger has not waned these past several years.
Per Ardua Ad Alta!!!
