Thu Feb 13, 2020, 07:20 PM

I'm a GRANDMA!! My son and his husband have adopted a beautiful baby boy!

They've been fostering him since he was two weeks old. (Sad story with his drug addicted and often incarcerated mother. She used while she was pregnant, and my NEW GRANSON will likely be a special needs child as a result.) But, so far so good. He's now 10 months old.

It's final!!! It's official!!!

It was touch-and-go... we weren't sure, and I daren't say anything so that I wouldn't "jinx" it. At one point the mother agreed to give him up... but then she went "off her meds" and wanted him back... then started setting conditions. What a mess. (Both her and the process.)

She already has four other children who have been placed in the custody of the grandmother... and her logic was that she could easily take care of "just one". --- But the state disagreed, and so did the grandmother who appeared in court to "testify against" her own daughter so that my boys (my grown son and son-in-law) could give him a chance at a better life.

She (we) have no idea who the father is. She was prostituting herself for drug money and there's just no way to know... so that's one less thing to worry about.

Hey! Did you catch this part: I AM A GRANDMA!!

I knew it would work out. But then I was so afraid that it wouldn't. I can't stop smiling. I'm over the moon!

PS: My boys were "on the list" for just a couple of weeks and they were initially offered the chance to be foster parents for three siblings (1-2 and four) ... that was just too much so they declined (and they feared that they'd be put at the bottom of the list for declining). But less than a week later, they were asked again... and it all worked out.

I'M A GRANDMA!!

You can ask any of the ladies I used to ride the bus with: their grandchild was not official until I had seen the picture. Even if you haven't got a good one, the story is still heart warming.

... but I'm going to respect my boys' wishes on this and not post any photos. Privacy, doxxing, google's reverse image search, facebook...they're very protective and only sharing photos selectively.

I can tell you that he's adorable. He has a very large head... but I'm sure his body will grow into it. I love him so much!

124. And your boys are absolutely right.

They should be cautious, and I am perfectly content with my mental image of an adorable baby with a big head. He will not need to play pro basketball, but he will need his wits about him. Congratulations to all concerned.

Our gorgeous grandson was adopted two and a half years ago and my kids literally had a phone meeting with prospective birth parents for a second baby last night! If you havenít ridden that roller coaster you canít appreciate the strength it takes. So many almosts, maybes, rethinks, but itís all so worth it.

Congratulations Grandma! Iím so very, very happy for you!

I really didn't want to announce anything or hint at possibilities, then have to explain how/when/what went "wrong" if it didn't work out.

63. I get really weepy when I hear stories like this.

I'm adopted, and it is the best thing that could have ever happened to me.

NurseJackie, give that new grandson a big hug from me . And hug both of his dads for me and thank them for doing the most wonderful thing in the world!

Congratulations to all of you!

74. Let's not forget about the pain that the mother is no doubt in after having her parental rights

terminated. She obviously loves her child very much. I hope your son and son-in-law will respect the legitimacy of that love and commit themselves to an open adoption.

If the mother at one point "agreed" to give up her child it might have happened in the aftermath of intense pressure and coercion. The fact that she ultimately refused to sign adoption papers does not reflect a lack of ethics on her part and nobody can fault her for not doing so. No mother should ever be faulted for loving their child and wanting to parent them.

We don't yet know whether the baby in question will have a better life, only that he will have a different life. I don't begrudge you your happiness over becoming a grandparent. But we should not forget about the woman who has just suffered a terrible loss.

Kudos to the mom for fighting for her child. And kudos to your son and son-in-law if they do the right thing and recognize that their adopted child has a mother who loves him and try their hardest to keep her in his life.

Yes we do!

This is remarkable. Unbelievable! I haven't been personally insulting to you or your family. What it is that makes anyone think that they have the right to presume things about this situation and my family and to make rude insinuations and insulting comments?

It's unclear what prompted this... but that ENTIRE post is rude and inappropriate. Please don't lecture me. And please do not presume to judge or tell us what we "should" or "should not" do. Don't presume to know the entire story or background. Someone so woefully ill-informed about the circumstances and how things came-to-be has zero business offering "advice" or pretending to know the birth mother's state of mind.

You disrespect Nurse Jackie, her son and SIL...her entire family. Love and caring go a long way. The courts and social workers already took four of them away. Then she had a fifth.

With all due respect, you are wrong to make these determinations without first had knowledge of what happened.

171. I reject the claim that adoption provides a better life. Adoption provides a different life.

As I understand her post, the mother's parental rights were not terminated with regards to her four other children. They are currently being raised by her mother because she has had problems in the past and most likely has financial issues in the present that make it hard to raise those children. But she is still their mom, regardless of the fact that they are being raised by their grandma.

And what happened in the past does not relate to how she is doing now, including her financial ability to provide for a new baby. If she gets pregnant again, for example, I don't believe it would be legitimate to automatically terminate her parental rights again.

I believe that we should always try to preserve the bond between mother and child. And we should not completely discount the importance of biological connections. Those 4 children you mentioned just lost their brother.

I am not disrespecting Jackie, I am rejecting the moral legitimacy of our society's attitude towards adoption, and the lack of empathy we show towards first mothers (more commonly referred to as birth mothers).

I don't regret showing the child's mother some love and respect in a thread where nobody else has. This is most likely the most painful time of her entire life. She is a human being. And my heart is with her.

172. Here's some truth for you

My daughter teaches special ed in elementary school. She sees kids all the time who are neglected by their parents and live with their grandparents. The kids are knocked around back and forth between parents and grandparents until they hardly know who they are. They often have emotional problems because of their "loving" biological parents. They are often neglected and feel unwanted and unloved. If she loved that baby so much, perhaps she should have started loving it by not using drugs during her pregnancy.

Nurse Jackie's new grandson will be loved and cherished and know it, unlike the undoubtedly miserable life he would have had with his mother.

Yes, I can feel some sympathy for the mother. She has serious issues and is likely an unhappy person, but this baby deserves better than she can give and the original grandmother knows it too since she testified against her daughter having this baby.

173. You don't know anything "undoubtedly" would have happened.

And if a mother has a drug problem, that is what foster care is for. And that could include drug testing in order to resume custody. The purpose of foster care IMO should not be to see if we can replace the parents with "better" parents.

I don't care what the grandmother had to say. Her opinion shouldn't matter. It is information and documentation that matters. So, for example, the grandmother could tell us if her daughter visits with her other children regularly. Or if she tells them she loves them. Beyond that only a drug test can tell us if the mother is ready to resume custody. And foster care should be about getting children and their parent ready for the point where they can be reunited.

It is not fair to say that her addiction problem means that she doesn't love her child. She proved her love by fighting to keep him and by trying to take part in a reunification process, which would have involved staying clean and drug testing before that process could culminate in reunification.

176. Her opinion matters a lot

because she's ended up caring for four kids she didn't plan to raise and doesn't want to add yet another one.

Yeah, foster care is so wonderful for kids, right? My parents took in foster kids when I was little. I still saw how unsettled their lives were, even in a good home. They stayed a few months and then off they went to another place. The last was a little boy that no one wanted until someone (us) wanted to adopt him and give him a forever home. Suddenly his family wanted him back because it would be a "stain" on their family to have a child adopted out. He had a life moving back and forth from mother to grandparents, knowing no one really wanted him.

You're putting mothers first, most people put the kids' best interests first.

175. You're making a lot of assumptions and writing "should" a lot.

You're leaping to a lot of assumptions to fit a narrative that revolves around what you think other people "should" think and feel.

Instead of picking on somebody who is celebrating their son's and family's lifelong commitment in adopting a child with special needs, perhaps you might find a kinder use for your concern about people's rights. Do you volunteer to help special needs children, or people struggling with addiction?

There's a lot wrong with the world today and plenty of ways to help.

By the way, as a gay person, I noticed how Nurse Jackie affirms her son's marriage to another man, and their decision to adopt a child. Many parents of gay children are not as loving and accepting. Nurse Jackie is celebrating love, commitment and family.

177. your rejection

does not mean you are right in your "moral" rejection or the rudeness you used to register your objection to this adoption. You are entitled to all your experiences related to the adoption process that helps at-risk children. Your judgements against this adoption hold no weight and have a ring of false empathy and more like contention for contention's sake.

Knowing about being adopted into a loving family, as I know the adoption process, from the first-hand experience of my life, the birth mother has not proven one iota of responsible behaviour in having 5 children who were born at risk because she showed no love in poisoning the fetuses she carried.

He pain is real as an addicted person and I hope she gets the help she needs, yet she had no right to put her child at risk as she did, period.

From what can garner from the posters loving enthusiasm of becoming a grandmother, the child now has a fighting chance to have a normal upbringing with love and caring in its life.

179. I reject the notion that having two mothers while growing up

is healthy for a child's well-being.

For the child's psychosexual development, it needs to bond with a "primary" maternal figure without divided attention.

When the child becomes an adult and fully understands the various roles, he/she is free to communicate and get to know the birth mother. Some adopted children do this but many don't because they don't want to be ungrateful to the adoptive parents.

You should look at it from what is good for the child and not for biological mother. Her consideration is secondary to that of the child's well-being.

144. Major congrats to the New Grandma!!!

And kudos to your son and his husband for opening their home to a needy child who will now have an awesome family life and future ahead.

Also, wishing good things for the other four children and their mother. I hope she can get her stuff together for their sake if not for her own.

Again - congratulations!!!

Enjoy being a grandma!

A friend has a refrigerator magnet, which says: "Granny is the name. Spoiling is the game."

164. Congratulations!

We had a similar event at church--two married men caring for a beautiful baby girl in hopes of adopting her. It was touch-and-go for months waiting for the adoption to go through. They now have her and her baby sister. Both are gorgeous toddlers now and intelligent and energetic. I wish the same for your grandson.

168. That is a very big deal and highly commendable to take an infant who has

not been well cared for during pregnancy. Congratulations and wishing all the best to you and your son's family.
