My husband and I are in the process of adopting a child through out of state foster care. We have been generous with bio parents emailing pictures and updates. Our adoption is scheduled to be finalized in June, so right now we are not allowed to post pictures online. But, now I have found the bio parents have posted all of the pictures we have emailed them on FB! They did not ask permission, and I have emailed them asking to remove them, that we do not want our childrens pictured posting online, I have not received a response from them...
This is not the first issue we have had with bio family, and we do NOT have any legal agreement on the openness of the adoption...
This is a rant, but I'm also interested in others point of view on this issue, I know it's been posted before, but I was unable to find old posts. Thank you!
UPDATE.... Here's the deal... their parental rights were terminated almost a year ago... our child spent her first 4 years in a hospital due to medical issues, child was ready to be released from the hospital 2 years ago, her bio family had 2 years to get training to take the child home, they did not. They lived 30 min away from the hospital the child lived in and only visited 15 times in 4 years, each visit lasting about an hour!!!

Since their rights were terminated do they even get a say in the adoption period? Could they back out? I'm sorry, I know nothing about adoption but this has me curious.
