Default Reversing adoption in Pennsylvania

Hello my in-laws are looking to reverse the adoption of their 14 year old daughter in Pennsylvania. They adopted her 10 years ago. She has become ungovernable and they are afraid for their lives and the others in the home. She has tried to commit suicide 5 times all over an 18 year old boy they will not let her date. She has also attacked my MIL. They are all emotionally drained and in the best interest of all parties its best for them to part ways. It is obviously a heartbreaking decision and not an easy one. We live in the state of Pennsylvania.

I wish to inform you that the ability to annul adoptions is generally limited to instances of fraud in Pennsylvania. Further, the court always keeps in view the best interests of a child in case of a minor. Your in laws and their daughter may like to contact a counselor to work on their relationship. They may also contact an attorney and seek guidance.

I would recommend they look into respite care, along with inpatient mental health care. An adopted child is the same as ones natural child. They have an obligation to that child.

Tell you your half witted in-laws that if they want to make an orphan out of their daughter to either invent a time machine or easier, enter into and fulfill a suicide pact. What a stupid question.
