I haven't really been able to share any of this...but things are one more step closer to being done, so I can vaguely share.
My brother and sister in law became foster parents to my niece (my SIL's bro's DD) 18 months ago. After a week long TPR trial it all ended today...with the TPR going through. Bio dad has 30 days to appeal, which we already know he will, but no one thinks it has a snowballs chance. It looks like my 5 1/2 year old niece will soon be adopted by my bro and SIL! This is never easy...even worse when it is family....but I am so happy for my niece, she just won the lottery.
