My son and his girlfriend have a 3 yr old little girl. They both have drug problems. The State just contacted me on Friday and told me that they have my granddaughter in Foster Care and that they have terminated the mothers rights. They are in the process of terminating my sons parental rights, also. My son has been in and out of jail and has a warrant for parole violation. I have not seen or heard from him in months. The State told me that after my sons parental rights are terminted - that my granddaughter will be put up for adoption. The State said if I wanted to adopt her, I would be given preference, as a family member. I AM SO TORN UP!!!!!!! I am 48 years old and my 3 kids are grown - 26,25 and 19. I am also single. I don't know if I can raise a 3 year old - BUT I DON'T KNOW IF I CAN JUST WALK AWAY FROM THE SITUATION, EITHER!!!!!! Will I be able to live with myself if I allow her to be adopted and never see her again??? Any advice would be appreciated, as I am driving myself crazy thinking about all this.
