I adopted my grandchild after parents relinquished all rights (drug addiction). Mother has totally changed life around, off drugs for 2 years, off methadone for 9 mo. She gets all the time she wants w child, but now she wants legal custody back. I gave up a lot of my life to raise granddaughter and mend family. I do not to relinquish adoption, and feel daughter needs more time to be clean and continue to get life in order. Can she reverse adoption?

Hi. Adoptions are typically final. This is especially true in the case of true relinquishment as opposed to a contested termination of parental rights. However, the rights of a parent to their child are quite strong in the United States and so it is possible that your daughter could pursue an Order to set aside the prior proceedings for technical/procedural reasons. These message boards can be helpful but nothing will replace an in-person meeting to review your situation in particular. Please feel free to contact our office and schedule a no-cost interview/consultation to discuss your matter in greater detail.
