We met our attorney today, and she seems very knowledgable and personable. Our guardianship court date will be set for 5-6 weeks from now. We could be appointed guardians on that day, or there could be delays if it is contested.
After the guardianship is established we will wait two years to apply for adoption. Two years seems like such a long time, but that is how long the courts like to wait in guardianship cases before terminating biological parental rights.
This is an uncertain path.
