Can a parent regain custody of 13 year old child when petition of adoption was signed. A waiver of parental rights was within the petition. The child was taken from the mother from DCS, the mother asked grandmother to adopt the child so mother can take care of issues. Everthing was resolved and the mother did not terminate her rights nor did DCS. It was a quick solution between Grandmother and mother till matters where taken care of. The verbal agreement was child return home but child has yet to return and child has expressed multiple occasions that they would.
