As expected Tank's case plan changed to Severance and Adoption today. It was heart breaking to watch his birth mom hear this news. She has been out of contact with everyone for awhile and it was a surprise she was even there. She hadn't been notified prior to the hearing that this would happen. As much as I know that Tank will be loved in our home I definately do not take it lightly to know that her heart is aching right now.
Severance should occur next month and then on to Adoption. They said it could take 6 months to a year. I am hoping we can keep it to 6 months. We would love to be done by Christmas -- what better Christmas gift can you think of!?
