Here is OK they call it "Swift Adoption" Now we have the baby sister of the one we are adopting and are starting all over again... jury trial in Dec. to determine parental rights It can be very frustrating, but I wouldn't change any of it.

In our case, birthmom relinquished voluntarily and birthdad has never been in the picture so his went uncontested. But, you're right, the 6 months might be to protect the state should birthdad suddenly resurface.

Good luck with the siblings! Is it just the two of them from those birthparents?
