Unhappy Adoption Update


 
The court date to terminate the parental rights is a week from today (May 31). Both birth-parents have made noise that they plan to fight it, but have done nothing legally yet. Let's keep our fingers crossed that they are all bark and no bite. The birth-father lives in Colorado and is on probation for dealing drugs; he is not allowed to leave the state, but he can send legal representation on his behalf. The birth-mother (who is 7 months pregnant) is currently in rehab for her heroin addiction.

I believe if they don't show up next Tuesday, their parental rights will be terminated that very same day. If that happens, we will be taking the boys full-time June 1 and our adoption is scheduled to be finalized on July 14.

If they do show up, then the court will reschedule a hearing date and this could drag out for a while.

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers during this very stressful week. Thank you.

I hope they don't show up or put up a fight. You guys really have the childrens best interest at heart unlike the birth parents. You are going to be such wonderful parents!! I can't wait until you say "It's over!! We got them!!"...
