I keep in contact with some other local foster parents in my community and there has been some discussion about TPR (termination of parental rights). I know very little about it since we haven’t gotten too close to that ourselves. It seems around here it is a very LONG process. Like four plus years from placement to adoption. Wow. Seems like it averages two years of reunification effort then two years of TPR/ waiting on courts/ giving bios very possible opportunity to postpone it.
