What a tough spot!

Have the relatives tried to have contact with her over the last 7 months? Lack of attempt at contact may sway things in your favor some...maybe?

Good point! I will try to emphasize the lack of contact.

I am praying for you and baby! I've never been where you are, but my thoughts were to include any organizations, routine play dates, etc... like kindermusiÁ classes, regular play dates. ....maybe these things would be a help showing she has built stability, routine, and relationship bonds while living with y'all these last 7 months. Keep us updated! ((Hugs))

(((HUGS))) I have no idea, but I'm hoping I'm not eventually in your position here (which appears possible in the future here due to some news I received today). Is it a close relative?

My pastor and his wife did this, and they won. They did end up spending money out of their own pocket to do it, but it worked out. He is theirs forever now.

Do you know what made it go in their favor?

The fact that the family member was not previously involved and also was not able to give the baby the same environment that he had been used to (two parents with a stay at home Mom, many siblings, same home and church family his whole life, etc.).

My parents were able to successfully fight birth parents for custody in 2 of our 4 foster to adoptions. The other 2 were not contested. If you need more help, I can see if they remember what the arguments they used were, although it has been over 20 years since the last trial.
