I just wanted to leave a quick update for those of you who might be wondering what the status is on my grandson's quest to keep his daughter from being adopted. I haven't been posting because I didn't want to give away any important issues about this case so much has been hanging in the air. I wasn't sure what was safe to repeat and what was not.
But some things are now public and so I can at least give you the status on those. Last Thursday or Friday (I can't remember which) the adoptive family and the birth mother were served with papers for a hearing in my grandson's behalf on the 20th of this month.
The adoptive family was supposed to keep the baby until that time but did not. They took the baby back to her birth mother's yesterday. Currently that is where the baby is with a mother who clearly has stated she does not want the child.
While this whole thing feels like a nightmare, at least my first great-granddaughter (who will be four) has finally gotten to see her new baby sister. The poor kid thought the baby didn't come home because she hated her older sister. I hope this does not cause that child anymore grief than she already has.
In the meantime your thoughts and prayers would be appreciated. The whole family is struggling with the challenges of this latest obstacle in our lives.
