What do you think?
OK...so after talking a bit more with our social worker she has suggested that we make it clear that adoption is what we are really fighting for (not PG with us or anyone else). Of course we will be at the next staffing for him, but I was wondering if anyone has experience with this?? I have a "texting relationship" with his Dad (remember Mom is totally out of the picture). We have spoken on the phone and see each other at court, but I do not see him regularly. I was wondering if any of you have spoken with a birthparent about adoption or is this best left to the workers, etc. Of course I would do it in the most respectful way possible and I wouldn't "force" or "coerce" anything, but I want him to know how much we love Baby and that if he isn't able to care for him forever, that we want to be the ones to do it! I would express our openness to an open adoption (with boundaries!) as well. I feel like now might not be the right time , but maybe in the upcoming months??? Thoughts??? Again, I really like his Dad. He's a nice guy, but really just not able to parent a toddler and give him what he needs. I certainly don't want to do anything to mess up our chances either. Please share your experiences!!
