I have permanent legal custody of my 20 month old grand daughter...I've had her since she was 10 days old. Before she starts school we want to adopt her....which has been talked about before. My daughter is fine with it....however there might be a problem from the sperm donor (so called father). Yes he's a deadbeat...has only paid child support 3 times in 20 months....calls maybe once a month. I have a very good relationship with his parents...they're awesome people. I am purposely waiting for time to go by because the more time goes by and he doesn't pay child support the better for us. Now he's 22 years old....but mentally he's alot younger...he hasn't got much social skills...he acts about 14 all the time....he can't hold a job...and doesn't get a perspective on what reponsibility is....even his own parents have told me this. He's on welfare too....no motivation at all. His drug tests came back positive back in december 2007 for crystal meth & cocaine. The Judge left it our disscretion for his visitation. The other grandparents see my grand daughter alot...even take her weekends here and there to give me a break...like I said they're awesome people. They supervise their son's visits when he does get the motivation to go over there and see her when they have her. Do we have a good chance at fighting to adopt her...knowing what I've said about the so called father? Would like some input...also I am in Canada...so laws here may differ than those in the USA. Thanks in advance!
