Foster Parents Allowed to Adopt Despite Petition by Grandmother

Adoption of child by foster parents was found to be in the best interests of the child, and adoption petitions by paternal grandmother and paternal great aunt were denied, even though the child’s brother lived with the grandmother, the court finding no bond between the siblings and expressing concerns about the mental stability of the grandmother’s paramour and the grandmother’s role in public accusations and threats against the foster parents.  Adoption of B.N.M., 6 Fid.Rep.3rd 289 (O.C. Berks Co. 4/15/2016), aff’d, No. 372 MDA 2016 (Pa. Super. 10/19/2016) (non-precedential).
