Ms. April Ramey Fuller Sasser
The last couple of days I have blogged of my walking by faith and not by sight so to my delight and surprise Pastor Jimmy lectured a sermon on walking by Faith. It gave me new direction, insight and inspiration. Pastor Jimmy began by preaching “These are my people.” And just how glad he is to be a part of it. He spoke on the Fundamental Christian Doctrine. You cannot be saved you cannot know Jesus and you cannot get into heaven without walking by faith and claiming the Lord as your God. You cannot accomplish any of this without faith. You have God to believe whom he is and a God is who he says he is. You have to make a commitment to God. Faith is believing in God and Jesus. You may have the intent but no faith and no God. If you believe in Jesus you are a follower of Jesus. Give your heart and step out in Faith. Until you give your heart you do not know God’s power, love and suffering. The true belief is Faith. Hebrews 11 For Faith is the substance of all things hoped for. God has a plan and there are 3 evidence of things not seen but I have a place prepared for you in my Father’s house among many mansions. You name is written in the Lamb’s book of Life. God knows you better than you know yourself. By Faith Noah began to build the Ark. Finally one day it began to rain and flood. By faith Noah had built the Ark. When you give your life to God he accepts you as his own. By Faith all that we believe is by Faith that we decided to follow God. For by Faith He will move that mountain out of your way. God has a plan. God I trust you for the impossible. Easter being the most significant holiday of Jesus death, burial and resurrection. Spread in good Faith the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I have walked by Faith and not by sight pretty much my entire life. The Lord our God has always heard my cries and answered my prayers even more abundantly than I could even begin to imagine him answering me. All for his good. I blog often of my children and have been blogging less and less due to hopefully penning a memoir / letter to my girls in my very near future. But for once upon a time for a Judge to tell me I could not see my girls because I was a family violence victim and of the mentally challenged with depression, anxiety and codependency as the caregiver was not acceptable and I have since won numerous hearing in Rodkdale and The Alcovy Judicial Circuit which are all of public record since my early 20’s for my girls. I felt as though I wanted to leave behind good fruits in the O.C.G.A. to share with my girls. Mr. Sasser was instructed just weeks prior to our family violence incident and my hospitilizaiton that I would have custody of our youngest daughter and he was not to interfere in the relationship pf me and my older girls. I immediately won a Pro Se hearing in Rockdale County, Ga in front of the Honorable Sidney Nation regarding my girls in 2005 and it has only been an uphill success since then thankfully to the Lord above. My goal was to accomplish much fruition even being diagnosed as mentally challenged suffering great depression, anxiety and grief. Keeping my girls from me is the result of this. Keeping my girls from me has been the root of all evil. Mr. Sasser and his family have NOT attempted to paint me as a bad mother nor wife in a court of law not thus far. Only behind closed doors to my girls to their faces have they bashed me with lies and hatred and malice with no just cause. Mr. Sasser had 10 plus years as a family and 2 plus years of a divorce and atleast a dozen hearings since 2005 to present to paint me as a bad mother or with any remiss, neglect or abuse and never has. Not him nor his family members. My advocacy began in my early 20’s prior to adopting my step daughters and hoping to end the vicious cycle of abuse that they had endured from their natural mother. Unfortunately without telling their stories there lives have been a living hell since our divorce. All my children’s for that matter. At some point in their life. There have been highs and lows but certainly there life would have been a lot smoother, more stable and prettier with me in it just as it was for over 10 years. Adoption is a very hard task to complete with 3 girls. Independent Adoption Report – State of GeorgiaI. Verification of allegations contained in the petitionII. Circumstances under which the minor children came to be placed for adoptionIII. Whether the proposed adoptive parent is financially, phsically and mentally able to have the permanent custody of the minor childIV. The physical and mental condition of the minor children to be adoptedV. Whether or not the adoption is in the best interest of the minor childrenVI. Suitability of the home to the minor childrenVII. Other information – ReferencesFour references were obtained on myself, Leslie Syles, school counselor, Julie Manders, school counselor, Mark Zielenske, family friend, Charles and Dot Sasser. All of the references support the adoption of the minor children by the petitioner, April Christina Fuller SasserI have been fortunate enough to go on to graduate and work as an mental health Certified Peer Specialist for the State of Georgia gaining a better understanding and knowledge of even my own children and their lives hopefully one day being able to share my experiences with them. The last year we spent as a family was spent at my place of employment among the families of The GA Force indoor arena league football team and at the games every weekend and my children cheering on the filed with the ladies and celebrating their birthday’s there. My son has continued to remain a constant state of my life since this divorce and has become my best friend through the years as we have struggled together to make it. I do this as a Labor of Love and devotion and commitment to my children and know that just as I have had reunification process with Brittany I will with all my girls eventually. I ask that you understand a mother’s heart that longs to kiss her children’s faces everyday and hold them near. As I continue to live one day to the next, day by day walking in Faith and not by sight.
