I'll make this as short as possible. My brother got a girl pregnant, she told him she had four other children taken by the state before, for some bogus reason, we all knew she was lying. Fast forward my nephew was born last week, CPS stepping right away. My brother exploded (he has a developemental disorder) and he is not allowed around his son until after a hearing tomorrow. My mother went to the state they are in, she is sitting in for me (I have three kids and DH and I are moving back to our home state in less than 2 weeks). The plan with the CWer, the judge, my mother and the birth parents is to place the baby with us. The cwer wants to get us ready to adopt him. They are in WA, We will be in NM, so she said it could take up to 3 months to get all the paper work and what no worked out, he is with a good foster family right now. I don't even know where to start! I've never dealt with CPS in anyway, one way or another. BM will never have rights to the child, and my brother has agreed that I can have custody, but isn't sure about it being a full on adoption just yet, but he has said he will more than likely agree. I'm lost! Any advice would be wonderful! Thank you ladies!
