So...We have had our 5 year old Nephew(kinship placement) for a year now. After we had him for about 5 months, DHS suspended the parent's rights. Not too long after that, we found out that they were pregnant with another little boy. I asked DHS every visit, if we would get the baby as well... They never gave me a straight answer...all they told me was... "Stay prepared and we'll contact you when he's born!" About 2 months ago, the parents went ahead and relinquished their rights for our 5 year old Nephew (because they were hoping to keep the next baby). My question is...has anyone else had a similar situation? Will we get the baby from birth? I'm confused because they said the rights were "suspended" before the parents decided to relinquish... Dhs tells me that their rights were going to be terminated and that's why they relinquished so quickly after finding that out...
It's so complicated and confusing to me! I'm so thankful that we are adopting our oldest, but now that the baby was born just yesterday....I'm sooooo worried about him now!!! Any advice??!!??!
