UPDATE! Relative Adoption


UPDATE: Our neice has been picked up. She will likely go to prison..she feels getting her parental rights terminated is a small price to pay for getting freedom from probation officers and anyone telling her what to do. We meet with the baby's social worker and guardian in 2 days! so excited!

Hey Ladies, I'm new to this forum. My dh and I are in the process of becoming licensed for foster care and getting things ready/done for adopting. We have our home study completed, and are getting the foster care trainings completed. We are the adoptive resource for our neice's 3month old son. Our neice has a warrant out for her arrest (she will likely go to prison for 8 months and her parental rights will be terminated). She had stipulations/consequences for leaving her sober living home and now she is anxious/scared of those consequences. She did tell her social worker a couple weeks ago, that she did/does want to set up an open adoption with us. The baby's father wants nothing to do with him, does not want to parent him, nor does he want to see him. This will be a relative adoption, we are the only relatives who are wanting to adopt him. No one on baby's dad's side wants to adopt him. We are meeting with baby's guardian ad litem and social worker in a week.

We have had 4 early stage miscarriages.

Thank you! Since Baby T is in foster care, we're doing it thru there..it seems the easiest and less expensive. I do meet his guardian and social worker next week..hopefully get the ball rolling soon enough!

I have another update---even if it's been months since the last one. We found out that we are pregnant June 10th. We are almost 18 1/2wks along. We are still pursuing adopting our great nephew. The 'sperm donor' to the baby is now wanting to parent him, even though he told the judge in july he couldnt afford to pay child support, so he was going to terminate his rights. All of a sudden he wants to parent. how will he financially support him? parent him? this man has 3 other kids, he denys one of the kids, and does NOT financially support or parent the other two. He made it known that he wants to regain custody long enough to have another adoptive couple adopt the baby because then he'll see him just like he does with his other kids. We are now having to go to trial, this man had his attorney request daily visits. I am so exhausted from all this..but just hoping for the best. this man had NOTHING to do with this baby from january-last week of august. how can you ignore your child for until 5 days before the child turned 7months? I can't see why a judge would let him parent him without the means of doing so. this man is a shitty person. i am disgusted. the social worker and the guardian ad lietm both agree and have said the only place they feel comfortable having the baby go is with us. We have been diligently working at a bond with baby since he entered care in march...where was the man claiming he wanted to parent then? or when he was born? The case of where the baby will go, who will adopt him/gain custody of him will go to trial. The social worker, guardian ad lietm and BM will be called at witnesses. I need all the prayers I can get. The man was in prison/jail for a felony drug charge. He is an ex-con. he does not work. he is 31, lives at home with his mom and 2 siblings. He has told the social worker since baby was in care that he was NOT a permanent placement..now all of sudden he wants to be? i wonder..
