Justice Begun

We are all very thankful that in the courtroom on Monday things went as well as we could have ever wished.

Nicole was able to be calm and to testify very clearly. There were other witnesses who filled in other important details of that terrible morning. The driver of the car was charged with a variety of very serious charges and will now have to decide how she is going to plead. If she pleads guilty, there will not be a trial and Nicole will not have to testify again in the criminal case. If she decides to plead innocent, the case will go to trial and Nicole will once again be the principal witness.

As you can imagine, we are very relieved and thankful for this good beginning. We realize that we are at the beginning of what could be a lengthy legal process, but are very thankful that Nicole experienced justice operating on her behalf after such a huge injustice was done to her.

At the end of the day, Nicole and Luella were both exhausted and grateful; a pretty good combination after what may well have been a very disappointing day. Thank you again for standing by us as we walk through the steps of both recovery and justice.
