…and it is one of the happiest days of my life.
My twenty-two month old daughter, a foster child up until today, is now officially an orphan. Today her birthmother had court to start termination of parental rights. All she had to do is show up and say she is contesting. Then, many months from now a court date would have been held. She has sworn to take her case to the surpreme court.
She did not show! She never appeared in court and they held the termination without her. All her rights have been terminated.
Backstory: she is a serial drug abuser, cannot identify the father (she has 6 candidates), she lives in a love-sex commune that was recently raided by the state (Church of Universal Love and Music - google it and chuckle).
Our daughter was born with a club foot, tested positve for cocaine and was two months premature. She had surgery the day she was born and weighed 3 1/2 pounds. The birthmother took herion for birth pains.
We expected months of court then adoption. Now, the birthmother has 30 days to appeal, but no ground (she did not show to her court date, they have little sympathy for that), then we get an adoption date.
So, she is officially an orphan, but she has always lived with us and knows no other daddy and mommy. She is our tenth child and we love her to pieces. We’re blessed to have her.
I am so happy I could explode.
My daughter is an orphan!!!
