See what CafeMoms are saying about saving time this holiday season..
Court was today and the bio mom didn't show up for the second time. Bio Dad did but last month they was served with A termination of parental rights petition on both of our foster children. Today the bio dad shows up and says he never said he didn't want the children because he couldn't handle them. He has a set of twins and another son, so he has three children already and he's only 27 yrs old. Now he came to court with lies, first that he didn't receive the TPR petition, second that he never said he couldn't handle the children, when its on record and in black & white. Now the case worker called me to say " he'll surrender his right as long as we meet with him so the boys can see the twins. Now he does know we don't want to have anything to do with him, because we did have previous dealing with him and he's danger. A big Liar!!! We just want to keep these kids as far away from him as possible. These kids are special needs and they need a therapeutic surrounding, not one with continuous dysfunction !!! We've had the kids going on 3-1/2 yrs now, enough is enough!!! This man also had the nerve to shout out in court that he doesn't know if he's the father of these children as well. But he was scheming with the mother at one time, so he sign some paper saying he's the father, when he got released from jail. This case is truly a mess. We are suppose to be moving on to TPR, now I'm wondering if this is a hold up. He don't really want these children, but he wants the twins, so he's trying to look good in the courts eyes. He's attorney told him he needs to surrender these children, but he's the type that won't listen to anyone for his own good. He thinks he can get over, I'm just hoping that the courts had enough of his games and lies. It's been to long. Anyone have any advice that can help me get a better understanding of what's going on here. I will truly appreciate it.
