I apologize for not writing to you in February. A number of you have asked how Daniel is doing so I am sending out this Update.  

For those of you who have been following the status of his final appeal. Daniel had to have his final appeal paperwork in on Nov. 12th. Then the Judge was to rule 3 days later ~ on Nov. 15th. She has not done so. Today is the 106th day since her promise to rule on his appeal. I'm praying, with you, that she'll rule for Daniel this week. A criminal defense attorney wrote explaining the response time for a 2255 Judge's decision. "2255 actions can take a long time for the courts to rule on. Unfortunately, there's no time limit on the courts to rule on them and the due process implications, such as your right to a speedy trial, don't come to play in the 2255 context. Good luck with your case."  

Mostly Good News is here...work wise. Both Daniel and Karis are now being paid for their work...though Daniel's is not quite up to snuff and is irregular. During this tough period one dear supporter has been very generous which really helped them. It looks like his work will finally be paying him enough to where he can finally become self-sustaining by mid-April.  All his patient, industriousness is finally going to be rewarded.

After Daniel is self sufficient by April/May I'll try to continue sending out monthly updates for you folks ~ to keep you informed about his future creative pursuits and the final decision of the Court. I've sincerely enjoyed getting to know you and will miss you once we don't have these exchanges.
