Update on my parents adoption Brookie99 1 child; Fort McMurray, Alberta 1126 posts

So much has happened since I've been on here for more than a couple minutes at a time! If anyone remembers reading about how my parents adoption fell through after the birth mother changed her mind I have an update!
After the birth mother changed her mind CPS was going to re apprehend the baby but since she had worked through her addiction and seemed to really want to do what was best for her baby my mom agreed to help her out so she could keep her baby. She asked my parents to be M's god parents and wanted my parents to continue to be in her life. Well two weeks after she took the baby home she called my mom and asked her to adopt M. She said she had changed her mind and even though she was trying she didn't feel she could care for her and was slipping back into her addiction. My mom agreed but only if it was what she really wanted. That was a month ago, last week the 14 day waiting period where she could have changed her mind was over. Now we just have to wait for it to go to court and be signed off by a judge which should be pretty open and closed since the mothers parental rights are now terminated. CPS here has never had a case like this where a birth parent decided to parent and then changed their mind again so they are still trying to figure it all out but in a couple weeks its safe to say I will have a new baby sister!

Congratulations! It might take quite a while to actually finalize the adoption (took 7 months for both of my little brothers) but its pretty much over for you now. Enjoy your baby sister!!!
