Stability is essential, particularly in young children. Having him adopted - by ppl you know so you would still see him - allows for that. You may never get to a place where you can care for him. Why should he wait?

45 days is not a track record.

I now have a month and a half clean attending 12 step meetings daily. my parenting skills or competence have never been doubted by anyone including my cps case worker my inability to maintain my sobriety for a long period is the only problem. Im not trying to get them back at this time as I know I'm not anywhere stable enough to care for them adequately I just want my youngest to be placed in permanent guardianship with the grandparents like his older brother and sister. if he is adopted by them i will not ever be able to get him back once i am ready and able to care for them, like I still can with the older ones as I still have my parental rights for them

need help ASAP:can guardianship be granted instead of adoption for my child

i allowed my two older children to be placed in permanent gaurdianship with their fathers parents 3 years ago after cps became involved an took them from me due to my drug addiction. now i have a 3rd child who was taken at a couple months old for the same problem an put on foster care. I participated in reunification services for a year but wasn't able to get him back and services were terminated by the court. my baby is now 18 months and was moved to his grandparents who now have all 3. cps is pushing for them to adopt my youngest I have court next month. how can I convince the court to allow him to go into guardianship like the older two instead of forcing him to be adopted please help any ideas to argue why it would not be in my child's best interest to be adopted
