This morning was a court hearing for the new baby's case. At a friend's suggestion, she will be called Miracle here on the blog.
Everyone was present in court, except any bio parents. No parent has even contacted CPS since mom's initial contact. Mom never had any visits and was late to the very first hearing. She hasn't showed for the second and third hearings.
Miracle has a different judge than either BB;s case or Precious's case. This judge is much slower and more cautious in moving away from family reunification. However, in this case, with two prior terminations and no parent making any effort, the INITIAL case plan was set as severance and adoption.
Next court hearing is end of August and TPR will likely occur then unless something radical changes.
Miracle's case is like a whirlwind from the moment I learned about her. She is an absolute doll and is doing extremely well. I love when she smiles back. Hopefully, her life can move forward quickly and be drama free, at least in this arena!
