Mountains Moved!!!!!!!

When I arrived at court this afternoon I found out from our CM that the parents were not going to show. Apparently Mom's excuse was that she ate some bad hamburger meat and couldn't make it. Dad didn't have any excuse apparently. We continued with the JR anyway...it's only taken since OCTOBER!!

Everyone pretty much went in the same mindset and at the end the decision was to change the case goal from reunification to ADOPTION!!!!!!!!!!!

Don't get me wrong...this day is bittersweet in a way because I realize that his parents will be extremely sad and hurt when they hear the news. I am not minimizing their pain, but at the same time I am SOOOOOOOOOO happy that LM will get to remain a permanent part of our family!!!!

The TPR advisory is set for March 1st...exactly 15 months since the day we met him! If they show up (they probably are not going to based on all that has happened) then their rights will most likely be terminated right then and there. If they do show up the process will be longer and we will go to trial.

We just continue to walk this journey trusting that God's plan is perfect and LM is meant to be a member of this family FOREVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
