I have to share and I'm anonymous just to protect any legal matters.


My family got the court date to finalize the adoption for my little brother!!

He was adopted by another family as a baby, and they were really close to my family. We fell in love with him and shortly after they officially adopted him he came to live with us and has been with us ever since. He's now 7 and our court date to have him officially adopted is set for the 15th!!


Our family is going before the judge in 4 hours!! This little boy who has taken over our hearts in the 6 short years we've had him will officially be ours, share our last name, and be forever a part of our family!! I'm just so happy that this day has finally come! The fears of the previous adoptive family taking him back is gone!

Wait...so he was adopted by another family and after he was officially adopted they put him in your house and now you're adopting him yourself?

I'm so confused. So your parents had a baby and gave him up for adoption to a family you knew but then your parents fell in love with the child they just gave up for adoption and moved him back in?

Yes. The family was over whelmed with the needs of his older two siblings who are special needs and felt it would be better for him being completely normal to be in a family that could devote more time to him than they could.

No. Another family adopted him. We're adopting him from them. He's lived with us for the last 6.5 years though.

Then why did they adopt him? Sorry but you don't adopt a child and then change your mind!!! 

Congrats to your family though, I'm happy he is loved and it sounds like better off with your family!

Legally the orginal adoptive parents set up a "care plan" for him. With my parents being listed as his care givers.
