The other sibs in this group with a different dad is going on 27 months with no rights terminated. The kids were in a different home before ours (except the 2 yr old). They need to move quicker on reuniting or terminating but they dont. Parents show a little improvement so they get 3 months more... and it goes on and on...sad just sad.
Where abouts in Kent are you?
I'min Byron Center. So we can potentially have them for 2 years and then have to return them?!! Ugh! Why the push for reunification? Is there hard data that shows that kids that go back to bio parents turn out better then those that are adopted by a loving home? I'm all for reunification and would love to see a change in parents but change is difficult.
