    A glimmer of adoption hope

    As some of you know, my family is losing a child we had hoped to adopt after having him for one year now. His paternal grandmother, who had been completely supportive of our daughter adopting him for 11 months, changed her mind at the last minute. Little C is bonded to us as much as any birth child. At age 2, the current transition has been very difficult and confusing for him.

    The hope for us comes from the Guardian ad litem, who was never consulted concerning Grammie Sue's adoption of C. The guardian ad litem! C's only voice in all of this! Now that she knows (it was casually mentioned to her two weeks ago by DD, who assumed she knew) we are hoping she will intervene. Sue has been asked to come in to "talk" to the social workers on Monday. The permanency meeting is only in two weeks, then C is gone forever.

    Just so you know, we are completely in favor of kin adoption. But 11 months in to a 12 month period is unfair (in our opinion, wrong) for everyone involved.

    We are heartbroken at losing this little boy and any prayers for us all would be welcome, no matter what the outcome.

        Wow! I can't believe the GAL was not aware of this! I hope it changes the situation in your dd's favor. You just never know. This whole situation is just terrible. It just ludicrous that this family member is just now stepping up to bat.

        Still keeping your family in my thoughts

          We have been praying that God bring someone in the Legal System up to represent Little C...maybe this is it. We sure hope so, we'll continue to keep praying that C will be allowed to become part of B & J's family. I don't understand how she didn't know about all of this, it's unbelievable but then you hear about this happening.

          I wish I was closer to you to come and share a hug/coffee with you! Hang in there, we love all of you!

            As I am finding out, they don't know a lot.

            Prayers for your family & C that this will work out in his & your favor. My heart truly goes out to your family in this situation. Many blessings should be heaped on the family for taking in these children and loving them like their own. I can only hope that our boys had such loving care in the last few days.

            We have our own appointment with the court tomorrow. Hopefully by tomorrow afternoon we'll have our grandson and his half-brother placed in our custody.

            I just can't grasp how people can treat children this way.

              Oh Cyndi, Yes I will pray that something good will come of this. I just can't understand why the grandmother would want to take him away - especially since Bethany is willing for her to be in his life as his grandmother. Just does not make any sense. Praying that God will intervene in a mighty way.

                Continuing prayers Cyndi. You have to believe that God's plan is better than any here on Earth. Just because she is kin, does not make her the best choice. I must say we were so very lucky in the judge that we had with all of Gabe's legal issues. His GAL would not have been my first choice...but it all worked out the way it should have in the end. You have to believe.

                  I do believe. It's just hard to accept that maybe C being taken away from us is God's best plan. It doesn't make it hurt any less. I just wish if he did have to be taken from us, that it had happened before we all fell in love with each other. Trusting God sure can be tough for me sometimes, especially when I'm in pain. Like now. We've all been there, I know. Thanks everyone for understanding and supporting me.

                        Will be praying for your family, I know when my SIL and BIL were fostering, she said when they were taken away to live with family, that was the hardest thing she ever had to do. Once they adopted Londyn, they stopped fostering.

                            Oh, Cyndi, I hope that the guardian ad litem will see fit to keep C with you. Couldn't they work something out where his grandmother can still be in his life just as his grandma and you as his parents? Is that possible? I will be sending up prayers for the situation.
