I apologize if this is in the wrong place.
My state is NC. I have a post in Child support called Child support and visitation (in case that would be helpful).
I have legal custody of a 23 1/2 month old. We've had him since he was 3 months old. She had him in prison. The mother averages seeing him every 4 months, except for the last 8 months she hasn't seen him at all. She calls every 2-4 months. She's an alcoholic, class 2 Felon (selling drugs to the police), extremely unstable (told her friend one time that the baby was in ICU.. and got upset because we didn't call her.. the baby was not in ICU at all..) she does stuff like that all the time.
Are these good grounds to terminate parental rights? If we can do this, we would of course adopt the baby.. would we have to do that immediately (we would need to save up the money to do the adoption).
Thanks for any info.
