It is through the Florida state agency, the only babies that are up for adoption are babies that are taken from the birth mother because of drug use...I am excited and terrified at the same time! It is a foster to adopt program, meaning the baby can be taken from them before it is a year old, Florida parental rights end at one year old. After the baby turns one they will adopt, but I am terrified since this is an open adoption and birth parents have rights to visitation and such. Anyone here gone through anything like this?
They chose to do the foster to adopt because the alternative was to adopt an older child with all kind of emotional problems, sex abuse, physical abuse, and overall emotional turmoil from being in foster homes, and they could not deal with that. They are so excited about this, they have decorated a nursery with all the trimmings...they have big hearts and are taking this as at least a chance to give a baby a loving home if only for a few months in the worst case scenario.
