Adoption Appeal


Has anyone been through an adoption appeal? What happened? I was granted the adoption but the biological parent appealed and I don't know what to expect.

I'm so sorry.

I'd guess this happens many times;
there's just too much shame & embarrassment in losing your parental rights, & I think also that it's a sort of dare that the birth parent responds to;
'I'm gonna take something from you.'
'Oh yeah???'

It's most likely all about ego & has nothing to do with the actual child or with the likelihood that a previously absentee parent will start shouldering any responsibility (or even has the ability to shoulder the responsibility).

Have you talked to your lawyer?

Take heart, & take care of yourself.
