    (I am bringing this over from the last thread, because I am so sad that Jahi seems to have gotten lost in this mess somewhere...)

    And in the midst of this, is dear sweet Jahi's soul...the eternal part of her that lives, shining and bright and full of joy.

    Jahi's body is not at rest, but my prayer is that her soul - that infinite spark of LOVE - is free, and has joined God in the most beautiful garden, full of snickerdoodle ice cream and swimming pools; that she dances with the angels, happily pirouetting and hip-hopping; that she laughs at the knee of God, with inexpressible joy at being Home at last.

    You, Jahi. That's who I think about all the time. YOU. And I pray for you, and for all those whose lives you've touched...

    Best-
    Herding Cats
    When you find yourself in the position to help somebody, do not feel burdened. Rather, feel happy and blessed because God is answering that person's prayer through you. In that moment, you are God's Angel - His door to reach through and bring light to someone who is struggling in the darkness.

    Be God's Light. Be God's love. Be an answered prayer. Be God's Door.

    Tying in with what I said regarding Herding Cat's post in the last thread....

    I am sure Jani is beyond this debate.

    She is with her maker and enjoying a life we have never known. I can only hope, soon, her mother feels that her daughter has reached that peace, (she has said she wants for her.)

    It is beyond bizarre to me that a mother would want to prolong hardship on her child. To me, that is what Jani's mom is doing.

    Jani is gone from this earth in all spiritual sense. Her body is the only thing left on this earth. Is there any chance to help anyone else with that body?

    As a Christian mother, or even a mother at all, why hasn't she thought about this? I might be wrong, but she seems to want to prove others wrong more then she wasn't to help her daughter. JMO.

    Quoting wendiesan from the last thread-

    IMO, this was a carefully chosen, very loaded word by the family's attorney.

    He is using it to appear to be objective, as though it's just a synonym for 'removing', like 'transferring' or 'conveying' or 'transporting'.

    'Extracting' has much nastier connotations and denotations as it is frequently used in military operations.

    I believe that the attny chose it to heighten the impression that the hospital has been holding this child hostage. IMO, he also chose it to imply that the child is living and that her family are warriors, coming to rescue her and who are in danger of being attacked themselves. .
    Agreed. It implies that she is being held against her will in a hostile situation and needs to be rescued by force.

    We've been a military family for nearly 12 years so maybe our perspective on the word is skewed but I doubt it. It isn't a word that is commonly used, unless you are talking about teeth.

    Ah I see. I thought it would be public since they might decide to either grant an extension or something else. I did not know that the outcome(s) would be confidential.

    Actually, I don't think they're finished yet. The last tweet was "no further settlement discussions this weekend." Perhaps they will continue Monday? And the TRO expires Tuesday at 5pm.

    So, we wait... again.

    I am curious if there is to be any supervision of the household, if Mrs. Winkfield brings Jahi home for care. There are 3 additional children whose well-being is of concern in this highly charged atmosphere.

    I hope that there is a provision by the Judge that if Jahi's body is brought to the Winkfield home for ongoing maintenance and care, that there is at least weekly contact with CPS, for a period of time, for the benefit of the other children, and how they are coping, and being cared for in the situation. They are really in a pressure cooker, with all of the attention in this case. JMO.

    K_Z, I hope that these children are checked on whether Jahi is brought home or not. It's hard enough losing a sibling at such a young age. To have to witness this craziness for the past three weeks (and counting), well, I really worry about them. School goes back into session very soon, and this has been all over the news, so classmates may ask questions in that "zero filter" way that kids have.

    What a tragic mess

    I had another thought (with my inner blue brain, not my outer blue brain, lol!) that if they do indeed remove Jahi's body from CHO, that it may occur late at night, so as to avoid cameras and attention. It would make sense to me to do this at about 0300, when the rest of the PICU is relatively quiet, visitors are away, etc.

    I was a bit disturbed that the actual doorway and street entrance to be used was named in the court documents. Good grief-- what kind of security plan is THAT??

    "Dover Street entrance"-- does anyone know if that is a "main" door, or a restricted area? Is it only accessible to ambulances? (I hope it is a restricted area.)

    I hope no one thinks I'm insinuating anything untoward by suggesting CPS oversight. I am an adoptive parent (as well as a birth parent), and the requirements of our child's birth country mandate that we have FIVE YEARS of post placement visits and reports by social workers. The situation Jahi's siblings are placed in is certainly worth monitoring in an official capacity for a period of time, IMO.
