    Adopting

    My husband and I have come to the decision that we will be adopting our great nephew in about 3 years time. My mom and step dad said that is about how long they can hang in to raise him. He will get closer to us more and more as the time gets closer. When he comes to us he might be about 4 years old .

    Thanks.

    His parents are teenagers incapable of caring for him and found unfit by CAS.

    Right now they are. His legal guardians are still CAS. In 6 months my mom and step dad will be. At that point we all go to court and I state my intention to take him after my parents canít care for him. Then at some point we need to do a home study and do a 27 hour course. His mom is my niece. She can always see him. I donít know his dad at all . But his dad is only 16 and having another baby with another girl so..

    Is your niece in a better place today? Does she plan to use birth control? Is she in school?
