It has taken 3 years but today the judge announced that
Amie van Dyk is Ayn van Dyk's legal guardian and she is going home!

Tuesday, April 1, 2014



It is April 2, 2014 and everyone is still waiting to hear some good news that Ayn is coming home. Most importantly Ayn has been waiting for now 1021 days to see her daddy and her brothers who love and miss her very much. The ache in their hearts must be unbearable. Still there appears to be no reasonable explanation for why so many suffer the pain of loss this great................


It is Nov 30, 2013 and everyone is still waiting ~ AYN IS STILL WAITING after missing her family for 897 days. Her family is still working tirelessly to get her home again. To that effort they will be returning to court on Dec 19th. Let us all keep positive thoughts and pray for the best possible outcome in 19 days. This little girl enjoys frequent visits with her mom but she needs to be home with her family permanently.

Yesterday, Dec 7, 2012 after Ayn had been waiting for 539 days her Daddy, Derek Hoare was finally able to make this announcement

"I have some big news, which will be difficult to explain in a single post, I will get online this weekend to elaborate. Ready... Ayn is coming home! an agreement was signed on tuesday for her return. it is a sect 60 agreement with no finding of a need for protection. I cannot explain the flood of emotions we are experiencing. I am ofcourse elated and will come online in a day or two, I'm tediously typing this on my phone but will spend much more time when I come on. Thank you so very much everyone."

I began this blog on September 1, 2011 and would not have believed I would be here writing this today, August 28, 2012 ~ 12 months later. This family who love each other so much have now been separated for 438 days. There are many blog postings here for you to read but I would direct you first to http://www.freedomforayn.blogspot.ca/2012/04/from-beginning-of-story.html You will wonder why the last date of reporting was in Jan 2012 and the only reason is that there has been nothing else to report. That's right, there has been no positive movement on the part of MCFD, Derek has had no reports about his daughter. This is totally unacceptable!

Hope is that thing with feathers that perches in the soul and sings the tune without the words and never stops... at all.
