As Ma*ury Pov*ich Would Say...

"In the case of baby Honey Bun...Alleged Biodad, you are NOT the father."

Yup - DNA results are back. Big fat negative.

The case will now default back to Biomom's husband (who is incarcerated as well) as the state recognizes the legal spouse as the father of the child unless proven otherwise. Because in this case it wasn't proven otherwise, the state isn't going to go through the hassle of looking for anyone else. Biomom likely prostitutes herself for drugs, so finding a biological father is unlikely anyway.

Social worker is coming to the house on Friday to put together the paperwork for TPR - this will be on the same birthparents as Cookie, so it will be a slam dunk. She wants it over quickly. She called yesterday with the news and says she is going to finish the paperwork this weekend after we meet and turn it into court next week to get a date for TPR. This means we could have a court date for TPR in January 08, and adopt in the spring.

I was also told to go ahead and work on the medical paperwork and putting together things for the presentation summary myself (since I have all the documents anyway). That will make life easier for everyone involved since presenting any summary to me written by anyone else is a joke anyway - we've had both of these girls from birth and we already have Cookie's presentation summary on the birth parents. History doesn't change.

I'll be scrambling until Friday to pull things together.

So happy to report progress!

Wow! awesome! You are so lucky! Where we live-they will NOT even think of filing for TPR until after they tested the Husband -and if Negative---then 4 months of advertsing for a BIO Dad in the paper. Lucky Duck!! Congrats!!!! It is just meant to be!!

Oh, I'm so very happy for you and your family! What joyous news!

We still have little Baby Bug but parents are doing everything right to work their case plans...so far (it's been 3 weeks). We just don't know what to think so we're assuming she'll eventually be returned to her parents. Time will tell.

We're really enjoying having her as a part of our family in the here and now. She's such a sweet baby girl!

Congrats again to you!
