Gloria's Romantic Monday: Updates On Life

***Gloria is a friend of mine I know from church. She is a single mother. She has a boyfriend, Gregory, who we all love and her son's father, Rufus, who we all hate. She is fun-loving and hilarious. Gloria is the type of friend who'd be there for you at a party, when things get tough, or even if you need help applying for school.***

Quick Recap [The last post I wrote about Gloria was back in the beginning of April. I'm going to say, again, that I was having PC issues. I spoke of her and Gregory's plans for their near and distant future. They plan to move in together in September. They also hope to move, at some point, to Texas. But Gloria's son's father, Rufus, is opposed to the move to Texas, so they were gearing up for a fight about that.] Read Romantic Monday posts.

A lot has happened since that post. All us girls went with Gloria to the courthouse in downtown Chicago for support for her. She's been back to the court a few times and a number of things have been sorted out with Rufus. He's now on record saying he's completely opposed to Gloria moving to Texas. He has also stated he wants to get their son a passport to take him on some trips around and out of the country. She's against that.

But also, they worked out a joint custody agreement and a child support agreement. So Gloria is getting (forced) help from Rufus to take care of their son and he's spending real time with his son every weekend.

Gregory is being supportive of Gloria because there's not much else he can do. He takes good care of her and has a great relationship with her son. When September rolls around, I think they'll be a nice happy family, along with Gregory's son.

In happier news, Gloria's 26th birthday is in a couple of days! She's planning on having a nice evening at home with Gregory the day of her birthday. All of us are going out next weekend. I, happily, have all of next weekend off, so I will be there to help celebrate.
