Definition of Torture

Merriam Webster says the definition of torture is:

Main Entry: 1tor·ture
Pronunciation: \ˈtȯr-chər\
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle French, from Old French, from Late Latin tortura, from Latin tortus, past participle of torquēre to twist; probably akin to Old High German drāhsil turner, Greek atraktos spindle
Date: 1540
1 a : anguish of body or mind : agony b : something that causes agony or pain
2 : the infliction of intense pain (as from burning, crushing, or wounding) to punish, coerce, or afford sadistic pleasure

Uh, ya - No. 1 is what happens when you are STILL waiting to hear if you have a court date!

I agree it's messed up. Really, is it that hard to find out the 2 names that they couln't read, to see who it was. Totally was shocked when I texted you and you said you hadn't gotten a date yet. I know you have one on the 5th, but man, come on give a person a break and confirm it for them.....
AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

I hope you hear soon!

How is Ade feeling? Has he improved??

D Dae said...

I agree, absolute torture!!!!!

Have they at least given you an update on his health?

We know that he is back in the foster home but that is what they told us when they called to tell us he was sick again. It is good he is back in the home because that means he is responding well the meds. They do take great care of the kids and are very careful to get them medical attention right away if needed.

We haven't heard anything since then...we called and they said "no news is good news" so....

Jess said...

AAAHHHHH!!! come on already....

Stephanie said...

Waiting right here with you...maybe THEY should get Blackberry's so the communication could be a little more reliable!!!! BB's work quite well in Ethiopia!!!!

Sarah said...
