U.S. Newborn Waiting Parents
Birth grandparents an issue....
My hubby and have been matched with are BM for a few months now, she is not due till July. Talking with her over these months we have learned that her parents were at the hospital when her last child (placed for adoption) was born and wanted to keep the baby. In our state they do not have legal rights but they wanted to persuade mom to not allow adoption. Birth mom did finalize adoption. This time with us, her parents don’t even know she is pregnant and she doesn’t plan on telling them. This poses a problem for us, we are very uncomfortable with proceeding under such deception. We are obviously torn since we have been with her for a while now and this would be our second non placement so devastating to think of but… When I put myself in the Mothers position I can’t imagine my daughter doing that.
Any words of guidance or experience would be appreciated. Thanks! This is such a fabulous site, such a great support through this trying adventure.
