Lil J was placed with us on March 11, 2009. Today marks 18 months that he has been part of our family.
Since he came to us about 3 weeks after his 3rd birthday, that means that he has basically been with us for a THIRD of his life. It is amazing when you think about it as a math equation.
We still do not have termintation trial date - even though the petition was submitted back in April. The trial MIGHT happen before the end of the year. But, being that it is already Sept, I am not holding my breath. It would still be months after the termination trial that adoption would be finalized. So, it looks like he will be with us for well over 2 years when he is adopted.
At this point, there is no doubt that bio mom's rights will be terminated. Even after 18 months, she still has done nothing on her court ordered case plan.
I can't believe how much he has changed, how much our family has changed, how much my LIFE has changed.
We have had our ups and downs, but the pleasures out weigh the problems.
