In the depth of winter, I finally learned that there was within me an invincible summer.– Albert Camus link
The next three sentences are for the attorneys: Julie did not ask me to post this update. I am doing so because I am very sad and I want our readers to pray for Julie and her children. I received the following information from a reliable source.
Julie has made a difficult decision. As you may know, Tony Jones did not return their son, Tanner, to Julie in January as is stipulated by the parenting agreement. Since that time, Tanner has been staying with his father. It is reported that Tony has gone to court to gain custody of his son. Julie allegedly fears that he might try to do the same thing with the other two children.
Tony's alleged pursuit of this matter has been very costly for Julie. She has incurred a $6000 debt with her lawyers. There is no end in sight for the continued need for counsel in dealing with continued legal actions by her former husband.
Julie has reportedly spoken with her son and told him how much she loves him. However, she has decided to stop fighting in the courts because she sees this as a never-ending battle. She does not have the financial means or the emotional strength to continue. However, she does sense the presence of God.
I will continue to keep the GoFundMe account open for donors. I would ask that everyone pray for Julie during this difficult time.
