I've been watching a situation on that mom's rights were terminated, but not dad's. The family is now facing returning the baby to her father. The agency we worked with never TPR's a mom's rights without doing dad's at the same time (or before). It can get really messy because in most states dad's have equal rights to mom.

Hang in there. Also, baby won't know if you're faking it ... fake it until you make it in the attachment department.
this is basically my motto for life in general.
