Need Help Answering Amicus Attorney's Questionaire!!!
Background: I am only a few more weeks away from our official court date finalizing bm's parental termination and my adoption of my son. He has not seen her or had any contact with her in more than two years. The only legal contact that she has made was a phone call and an email (listing her ridiculous excuses for not doing anything over the past couple of years) to my son's amicus (court appointed) attorney more than a month after the attorney tried to contact her. The amicus attorney has sent me and my my husband similar questionnaires for us to fill out and return within 30 days.
The question is: "State each reason it would e a positive improvement for you to adop this child."
I know that this may sound ridiculous that I can not come up with this answer but I am having a hard time putting my thoughts into words. Here is what I have so far...
-(Son) would have a mother that will always put him before her own selfish desires.
-(Son) would have a constant, consistent mother figure.
-(Son) would be legally secure in his home life and situation if anything should happen to his father. He would not have to worry about where he would live or what would happen to him.
Earlier in the survey I said, "I believe that I should adopt (son) because I can and do give him the stability that he needs to thrive. I love him every bit as much as I love my biological child. I always put my children first and do whatever I can to make sure that (son) has everything that he needs to be successful and happy. I could go on for days about why I think that I should adopt (son) but the fact of the matter is that whether I adopt (son) or not, my love for him and my relationship with him will remain exactly the same. No matter what, I will always continue to love him and cherish him as the precious gift and blessing that he is. However, my main goal is to ensure his safety. If, Heaven forbid, anything happen to his father I would like to know that he will remain in a stable environment where he will be safe and can continue to thrive"
I just don't feel like that is enough reasons. I feel like there should be a million more reasons but in reality those are the major reasons that lead me to want to adopt my son. Is there something that I'm not thinking of? Is that enough? Maybe I'm over thinking this. I just want to make sure it is done right.
**As always, no bashing please. :)
