The baby’s social worker just called and said that the judge has agreed to move for a termination of parental rights. The baby’s mother didn’t show up (she planned to originally) for the second time, so the case is moving along.
Termination of parental rights has been scheduled for October. The case is moving from child protective custody over to adoption. His social worker thinks that we might be able to have our finalization coincide with National Adoption Day. It’s all so surreal .. we got a call Monday April 21st about a newborn in NICU and people were calling us parents by that afternoon. His mother seems pleased with the placement and now we’re heading towards finalization.
I’m super excited, but it’s all happening so quickly that I’m worried that something horrible will derail everything.
