Bio Mom scheduled visit last week, then canceled. But kept visit with her other children the next day. Hasn't scheduled a visit this week yet. Caseworker said she doesn't know what's going on with her. Caseworker also said that she has no new news for me. Still no ruling on the aggravated circumstances hearing. She said Bio Dad was very defiant and arrogant at the hearing. He said since they (the county) started this, they can finish it. Meaning, he will make them do the extra work of the termination hearing, instead of consenting to adoption and signing his rights over. The lawyer pulled him aside after hearing and explained that it was in his best interests, since Bio Mom is pregnant again, that he sign consent for Sweet Pea so he could at least be around the new baby. If rights are involuntarily terminated, he will not be permitted to be in a living situation with children for three years. So, we will see. Still no dates set for consent hearing for Bio Mom or termination hearing for Bio Dad. Adopting through foster care can be a lot of hurry up and wait!
Blessings to you,
