    And he lied about that
    Reece hasn't had contact with Jordan since he was removed from his biological parents' custody.

    There is a legal difference between foster and adoptive parents. If Jorden was adopted by the Gorman's then Aaron Hatt is no longer Jorden's father...he should be referred to as the biological father since there is no longer a legal connection between the two.

    Terminating parental rights is considered the death sentence of family courts. It takes a long time and a lot of evidence against the parents for a judge to TPR. IMO and from my personal experience.

    We are assuming, because we have been told that Gormans are the adoptive parents and have changed the childrens' surnames to their own..
    What we do not know for sure, if it's even relevant is when this adoption occurred.
    It's only an issue because the alleged bio father has shown up and there his public statements are in conflict with what has already been reported.
    He has also chosen to speak publicly to several media outlets.
    The adoptive parents have not.
    Do you happen to know whether any records of adoption are in the public domain or do they all belong with CPS or equivalent?

    Each state is difference but more than likely the adoption records are sealed. Jorden may be able to obtain his records (original birth certificate) when he is an adult.

    I hope Jorden is an adventurous little boy who thought he was camping for a few days. I cannot stand the thought of him being let down by his bio, foster and/or adoptive parents. Breaks my heart for him.

    I held out all hope and I'm so glad he's safe now.
    LE knows where he belongs and as an adoptee in TN I think he is so lucky to be loved so much.
    His autism explains a lot and I'm sure the searchers had this info.
    What a happy ending and I hope the biological dad and others back off and let him get the care he needs.
    Hoping JAG has a good outcome in his future. He's certainly a survivor IMO.

    I think AH just wanted media attention. I guess he loves his biological son, but evidently hasn't been there for him in the past. So don't show up now looking for your 15 minutes of fame. JMO

    It was odd to say the least, he seems not to be aware of what is appropriate to share?

    I agree.
    I'm angry or I'd say more.

    short on accuracy too, if previous media reports are correct.

    I really needed a "feel good" story with all the gloom and doom going on.

    How do you know it is a lie? I have heard that he has only been with the family for a short time.

    I'm beginning to think that the bio dad is correct and that he is actually under foster care in the home

    I agree. All we really know though is that he hasn’t seen his son in a long time. We don’t know though, if he has had contact with Jordan, even if but through the parents.

    I know there’s been gobs of confusion in this case. I have nothing to back this up for proof, but I also think he is under foster care. Gotta go with my gut here.

    I'm interested in if he is actually autistic. It could explain why he would not respond to his name being called by searchers.

    I don't think foster parents get to change their charges surname to their own.

    Where I live, they publish in the Legal Journal a “Notice of Hearing on petition to confirm consent to adoption and terminate parental rights”. Since 2017, actual adoption records are open to the immediate adoption triad only, but not made public, except by court order. AFAIK

    (I successfully searched and reunited with my own birth parents many years ago, when records were not open.)

    TN adoption records law looks similar. There may be some variation when CPS has been involved, of course.

    Oops, didn’t think of that. though...
    We only have his name from

    Oh, never mind. I’m about as conflicted, unsure and curious with this thread, disappearance, events and media as I’ve been with a case for awhile~since our boy Gannon. I was wrong about most everything there so I’ll just have to be patient. I have no doubt at all TBI will get to the bottom of this story. I just don’t know how much will be published. One thing I know for sure is Jordan is alive, safe and happy at this point in time. Is he still in the hospital?

    I don't know where he is.
    I wanted a happy picture of him reunited with loving adopted parents.
    That didnt happen, yet.
    And That's more a measure of my unrealistic expectations and sense of entitlement to a storybook ending than it's realistic.
    I'm not sure alleged bio father has his best interests at heart, particularly if 5 years or longer separate them, by gong public when he is not the chief carer.
    (new case needed by me)
    I'm conscious that our posts here are public and I don't want to say more negative things about anybody involved because it may hurt the beautiful child or cause further pain in his life.
