It's me again! I just wanted to give you an update on what has been going on the last few days and what is coming up.
1. We went to court. Her father didn't show up, and we were told he never responded to the summons or contested my claims. However, because I am a non-parent applicant, by law, the judge must grant him an additional thirty days to contest my claim for sole custody. So, the next court date is August 13th, and if he doesn't show up, I will be awarded full, sole custody of my little sister. It was a little disappointing, but the judge appeared to be in my favour.
As we were leaving the room, the judge told me: "You are one step closer, and you don't know how close you are. Good luck."
All your positive thoughts and prayers are paying off, everyone. I will, of course, update you in August as to the result. Here's hoping he just doesn't bother showing interest, like always. Thank you for your continued support.
2. GAnime + Otakuthon are coming up. I am still going and can't wait to meet you there. As always feel free to chat with me, I am pretty approachable! New prints will be posted before August for those interested in knowing what my new print line up looks like!
3. I am moving officially on July 21st. That means I won't have access to the internet for a few days during that period. I apologize if this causes anyone grief or issues. I can't really control when the internet company will come to install, unfortunately. But, I will be working diligently on projects and commissions during that downtime, and I will send updates out as soon as I am able!

4. Bailey had an awesome birthday, and thank you to everyone who sent a card or a gift. You really didn't have to, but she was completely thrilled! She said it's nice to know she has people all over the world who care about her and wants to tell you all that she knows you're 'angels in disguise'.
