Legally Free: Since a child can have only one set of legal parents at a time, when the parental rights of a child's biological parents are legally terminated, either by their death, legal consent, or by a forced termination by the court, then the child becomes legally "free" to be adopted by...

Legal Risk
February 13, 2012, 7:17 am
There is one of those terms in adoption that is scarier than the most well-written thriller: "Legal Risk." (Okay, I know I gave it away in the title!) And it can be a wild ride but it can also be a piece of cake. "Legal Risk" means taking custody of a child before said child is legally...

October 17, 2011, 7:41 am
You may remember me writing about Puddin'. She was a 3-year-old who came to us twice, both times voluntarily placed in temporary care by her dad. Dad was a single parent who loved his daughter to pieces. He simply could not make it work. He couldn't stay employed, he couldn't hold on to...
A Calculated Risk
January 17, 2012, 7:54 am
When people find out we foster, they always ask the same question: How can you let them go? And that is really what we all wonder in the foster-to-adopt world, isn't it? What if we say yes to a placement that we hope will be permanent and then have to let go? If only there were a FAQ...

I lived in a small town that lost my paperwork twice and I tried for a year and a half to get licensed before I finally gave up and went with a CPA (private agency). Does your state have CPA's? It should not be a 2 year wait for a low risk or legally free child over the age of 5. I do not...
Adopted 14 yr old from foster care
January 28, 2014, 8:14 am
We adopted a 14 year old girl from foster care on National Adoption Day 2013. She was placed with us in September of 2012 and we could have adopted her 6 months after she was placed because she was legally free but we waited almost a year and a half so that no one felt like they were rushing into...
Daisy Update!!!
April 8, 2014, 11:48 am
We had our annual review and pretrial- Bio dad is DONE!!! Daisy is 1/2 way there to being legally free to legally join our family!!! Everything went well- I actually got to meet him, sort of. He was nice, seemed ashamed and reserved. I felt sorry for him to some degree and I made a point to...
