How would you feel if you thought the birth fathers rights had been terminated (his choice!) and then he came back a year later and got a court order stating the child has to go home with him within 2 months. The child has already been with us 14 months and we are very bonded. He was scared of men when he first came and has never even meant this guy. This man had actually tried to abort the child by beating up on my daughter to cause her to miscarry. Unfortunately she never presssed charges. Even though he has known where he was he has never attempted to meet him, support him, nothing. I'm scared to death we're going to lose him to a monster.

It's good your lawyer is working on it. I'd call the retired caseworker at home or drive to his/her house to see if they could be a witness. Was there a casa or ad litem during the original case? Contact them as well. And in Texas a person can be terminated for abandonment after 6 mos of no or little contact. I will pray for you and your family. I can only imagine what you are feeling. I can't imagine this being legitimate, something has to be wrong about all this.
