Tennessee's First in Adoption Bill

The "First in Adoption" bill was unanimously passed by the Tennessee General Assembly in April of 2018. On May 3, 2018, Governor Bill Haslam signed off on the bill, which will become law on July 1, 2018. This bill will affect several different areas of adoption and termination law while still ensuring that the best interests of the child are well maintained.

Adoption day is generally one of the most exciting days for a family. Whether a foster family finally gets the option to adopt from the Department of Children's Services or a family finally gets through the lengthy international adoption process, having the finalized papers in hand elicits a sigh of relief. But what if this is not the happy ending envisioned? What if, after adoption, the child is not bonding with the family? Or worse, what if the child is sabotaging the family with threats of self-harm or threats to harm others?
