5-years, 3-months, 23-days into Samantha’s abduction

DIF, Wendy Samantha Coronel Tenorio

Monday, March 3, 2014: If I had a dollar for every time someone told me to be patient with this situation, I would be worth millions of dollars right now. I guess 5-years is not quite long enough for a resolution to this. So, I had an interesting conversation with Lourdes today. I wanted to appeal the judge’s latest abomination of a decision were she basically used my suggestion of the psychology tests for everyone. It just felt like a stall tactic because the judge knows how this would go. Now that she was backed into a corner and had to make a definitive decision on something, this was a way to stall. Nothing more.

Lourdes goes onto tell me that she talked to the judge on Friday; reminding her the entire history of this case. The judge’s response when Lourdes told her about the prostitution business? “Maybe I should put Samantha in DIF (children services); away from both of them”. That is completely out of line. It’s no wonder this judge is being forced off the bench.

The reality is that I have only spent 10-hours with you TOTAL in the last 10-months. I am trying to keep a brave face Sam. It’s not easy. I’m human. So, based on the time it would take to file the appeal, I agree with Lourdes’ assessment of holding off for now. Hopefully the judge will not take several months to get the psychological testing done. In addition, if the tests go the way we expect them to go, DIF is off the table. Stay tuned…
