My friend who has been fostering for 22yrs has found herself in a desperate situation.
She has a foster baby who has been in her home over 2yrs from birth.
The agency has piddled around with this case and neglected to go permanent custody when there clearly was a right to do so.
Now that they have waited so long, a relative who lives in another state has came forward on behalf of the father, who will be in prison for next 6 yrs.
This is the very woman who raised him.
She has been aware of the situation for over 2 yrs and did nothing.
She is 65 yrs old.
My friend wants custody of the baby.
Her husband does not.
Does anyone know if you can adopt with only consent of 1 parent?
