Your Adoption Connection: In an at-risk placement with the sweetest baby boy
It finally happened! We currently have temporary custody of a six month old baby boy. It has been a stressful month, but it is looking like things are going to work out. The BM has signed her TPR and the judge is holding it until BF's rights can be forcibly terminated. He is currently incarcerated and will be for the forseeable future. Also, he has never been listed on the birth certificate or registered with the putitive father registry. This was a private placement that we found through a family friend. We will be moving forward around the middle of May, this is when BF's rights should be terminated and BM's will be filed at the same time also. Any advice would be great, it has been kinda crazy.

Your Adoption Connection: DS adopted in 2007, hoping to adopt again!
Congrats!

Advice on what? This is the happy time- and the nervous time because anything that can go wrong you have no control over anyhow, so you might as well enjoy the happy time as you will regret it later if you don't. :blue
It sounds like things are moving forward at the right pace...so enjoy!

Things are still progressing, but they seem to get more interesting every week. It seems that the BF has been released from prison on parole already and we can't get a reason why. His family has started to make some noise regarding the adoption, they all seem to think we are stealing their baby. One of his Aunt's posted on facebook about it and made it sound like someone had stolen the baby. Several people have shared the post, but not many people are taking it seriously. They even implicated the adoption agency. The good thing though is that the father has not made any contact with the court, our attorney, or even the BM. The stress is just driving me crazy, but we are doing the best we can to just love on the little guy and know that things will work out.

Hope all is going well for you!

We are scheduled to go back to court on 5/15 for the hearing to terminate his rights. It has been very quiet on his part since he was released from jail. The BD's mother and aunt are still making some noise and are threatening that they will be at court, but they shouldn't be able to be in the hearing. It continues to cause us worry, but our attorney says they have no claim on him.

Things went great at court yesterday! We were given full custody and are now waiting for finalization in September. The family didn't make any attempt to cause problems, no one showed up. On one hand, there abscence was great, since it reduced our stress level significantly. On the other hand, it was kind of sad. It just proves to us that he is in the right place and that things in the past happened for a reason. Thanks for your thoughts and prayers, just one more hurdle...

Thanks, Matt
