Today, right around the time I was expecting Nancy home from school, on this her second day back, the doorbell rings. Guess who?
I will simply cut and paste the entry I made into the now very detailed log I am keeping since Nancy's suicide attempt. Please feel free to comment.

Carol Katxxxxny (unsure of spelling) came by today asking to talk to Nancy. Carroll used to study with Nancy when she first moved in with Mary and I. I had encouraged Nancy to study with a mature sister and Carol was it. Nancy stopped the study months ago and Carol has not called on or really inquired of Nancy for a long time, and the purpose of her visit was obvious in that she was trying to gain access to Nancy in order to talk to her about the religion. She attends one of the congregations/Kingdom Halls I picketed and was very aware of my apostate status, and knows very well that JW?s are not suppose to have anything to do with apostates, yet there she was at my door.
I asked her what the nature of her visit was and she responded that she just wanted to stop by and see how Nancy was doing. I doubt that she was unaware of the judge?s order, but I nevertheless informed her about the situation, that, nobody, including mom or me or any other JW was to talk to Nancy about the religion.
She smiled robotically and said that she was sorry to hear that.
I said that I was not.
She said that she was sorry I felt that way.
I informed her that although I was glad about the judge?s order, it was Nancy?s decision, not mine.
She said she hoped that some day Nancy would change her mind, still smiling that creepy smile.
I said that I was pretty sure there would be no chance of that.
She again said that I was entitled to my opinion.
I said, "yes, yes I am, and if you really have Nancy?s best interests in mind, why don?t you come in so we can talk about it".
She said "no thank you" and left.
I believe that this was planned. I believe that somebody urged her to come by and minister to Nancy pretending not to know the situation. Her timing was damn near perfect for Nancy arriving home from school. It?s too much of a coincidence in my book. This is an indirect violation of the judge?s order and can be interpreted as harassment.
I immediately called Nancy?s attorney to inform him of Carol?s visit.
This evening, the girls and me talked about what they want to dress up as for halloween this year. It will be their first time and they are so excited. LOL, and this was THEIR idea. Halloween was the one holiday I wanted so badly to participate in as a child. I think I will dress up too.
