Bayne Family Reuniting
July 24, 2011 permalink
The Bayne children will be returning home within the month. The news coincided with another family event. Happy birthday, Zabeth.
THE CHILDREN ARE COMING HOME / 582
YES, YOU ARE READING IT CORRECTLY!
THE CHILDREN ARE BEING RETURNED TO PAUL AND ZABETH.
While I was informed some weeks ago, under instructions from the Ministry it was to remain confidential until yesterday. Well, yesterday was Zabeth's Birthday, coincidence but what a great way to celebrate. They were able to inform their children that this anticipated event was now official. They have been for some time enjoying unsupervised visitation and overnights with the children. The course of action developed by the area office is a kind of incremental return. Baby Josiah will come home first so that Paul and Zabeth can adjust to caring full-time for their youngest child, now five months old. Kent (7), Baden (6) and Bethany (3) come home three weeks later. Here is a comment from Zabeth herself.
"Wow!!! Thanks so much everyone. Thank you for all your birthday wishes - I sure feel special:) We had a beautiful day and it started by waking up with our baby Josiah beside us! Also we were able to tell our children today that they are really coming home! On Aug 2 Josiah will be returned to us and on Aug 25 our older three will be returned! We will remember this day forever."
So that is the timetable for the return. August 2nd Josiah. Kent, Baden, and Bethany August 25th.
We are very happy for this family.
