Both parents are in jail/treatment but would be out in a couple months. We didn’t know the baby was family until baby was about 5-6 months. Then we were offered baby and we went to fill out foster license but our case worker got fired so it put a hold on everything for about a month then new people contacted us to finish up the paperwork and we did and we started taking him for visits every week (only allowed us an overnight) we asked to increase our visits and were told no maybe in the future. We already petitioned the court to get placement but that’s a month away. Baby just turned one. Cps (child protective service) said it would be traumatizing to move him with us and that the bond he has with the foster parent would make baby unable to bond in the near future. Foster parent isn’t related to baby at all. We want baby! Would we win in court? Cps team based everything off statistics that’s it’s not a good idea to place him with us cause of the bond he has with the foster parent. We have been taking him every week for about a few months now.
