  • I think the point is that they WANT to give their child up for adoption period. And then how can they do that without using the foster care system. It isn't about trying to avoid having a foster case period. It is about making a decision to give children up and trying to figure out the best way to find them a family without putting them in foster care.

  • when did you decide to hire your own lawyer?
  • by Betzim Last comment: 13 minutes ago
  • Where I am GALs are only in rare circumstances. Also, to Sparkle, I know it is hard, but I have had my FD Pepa for almost two years too, and while they keep saying things will happen, they never do. I would love to hire a lawyer, call a GAL, Call a CASA, or whatever. But around here I don't have GALs or CASAs available to me, and I am almost certain that if I hired a lawyer that would work...
