Re: Advise for 17 month old abused baby.
I am so glad to hear that TPR is set and it will be soon! I totally understand the nervousness. Court dates when our little one was still our foster child were the most stressful days of my life, even after going through a serious illness with and death of my dad. I know that feeling well and I know it is not pleasant. Now, on the 12th are they going to request TPR or have they actually set that up as the trial date? If they are going to request it on that date they will then have to set up a pre-trial and then a trial. If they are going to TPR the decision may be handed down that day, the trial may go on for a couple of days and be handed down then or the judge may hand his or her decision down several days to several weeks later. The waiting is so frustrating, but it does sound like in the end things will work out for you and the baby. You are in my prayers. Please let me know how things are going.
I love my fosterparents/adoption board. There is a lot of helpful advice and support there for these specific types of things.
