Christopher’s knowledgeable caseworker noted that there was no record of the father agreeing to termination of parental rights. Her contact with the father has now led to an evidentiary hearing, which will give Christopher’s father an opportunity to state his case before the judge.
If Christopher’s father is successful in court then the judge may grant a reversal of parental rights termination, allowing the father to pursue reunification with his son. While we don’t know what the outcome will be for Christopher, it is extremely important that he now knows he has a father who wants to be a part of his life.
