Parental Rights May Be Terminated Despite Progress

The conclusion of the Orphans’ Court that there was a “reasonable probability” that a mother will be able to remedy conditions and regain custody of children was not supported by the record and ignored the requirements of the Adoption Act with respect to termination of parental rights, because the circumstances that lead to the children being removed from the parents’ custody had not changed.  Case remanded to the Orphans’ Court to allow reconsideration of the possible benefits of the parental relationships under 23 P.C.S. § 2511(b).  In the Matter of the Adoption of M.A.B., 2017 PA Super 202 (6/29/2017).
