Okay everybody, I am seriously not believing what happened in Sweet Pea's case. Was informed today that Bio Dad contacted his lawyer, retracted his consent to adoption (changed his mind about signing away parental rights), and wants his parents to raise Sweet Pea. I literally screamed into the phone: WHAT?!!! As soon as I heard the words, my heart fell to my stomach, or was it my stomach that rose to my heart, because I literally felt nauseous, dizzy, light-headed and ready to cry.
Actually, I DO believe this, because this particular bio parent has been trouble from the get-go. Criminal...Weapons...Drugs...screaming at the Judge, escaped prison, paranoid and delusional, etc., etc.
Caseworker said case now returns to a termination hearing, and does not think Judge will rule for grandparents, as the agency could not approve them suitable for kinship care. They are divorced-Bio Grandpa inquired previously about custody as Dad wished him to. He is ill, has a criminal and drug record himself, and is married to a drug addict. Grandpa also stated that he would prefer to have only a Grandparent role, not a parental role. Bio Grandma is also an alcoholic and has a current sentence she is serving at home. So, I am praying that Sweet Pea stays right where she is, in our family, the only family she has known since she was born, as we brought her home directly from the hospital. She is now 14 months old!
Please pray for everyone in this situation!
