Remember when I posted that Elmer's TPR trial date was going to be June 16th? I was wrong. That is his TPR HEARING date. So if either of his parents show up and contest DSS's recommendation to terminate rights, then there will have to be a separate court date to have a TPR TRIAL (I'm guessing probably 3-6 months later, based on recent history of how things have progressed with mine and other cases). If the parents don't show up, the caseworker said they may be able to proceed with having the trial on June 16th and terminating rights.
I had gotten excited thinking that we actually may have an adoption date this calendar year, but now it's looking again like we probably won't.
