Bring Baby Lily Home
Baby Lily was supposed to be adopted by her mother's cousins, Rachel & Trevor Templeton from Borden, Indiana. THAT was the plan…
When she was born in December 2021, she was removed from her birth mother, Jerica Marseguerra, by Idaho CPS and placed with a foster mother instead.
Now Idaho CPS refuses to recognize the original adoption agreement between the Templetons and Lily's birth mother - because they want to adopt her to a stranger through foster care - just so they can receive the federal adoption incentive bonuses provided by Title IV social security.
But Lily’s birth mother, Jerica, still has her parental rights and doesn't want that...
She still wants her to go to the Templetons.
Baby Lily is supposed to be home with Rachel & Trevor... and three brothers who have been waiting almost a year to meet their baby sister.
Please help bring this beautiful princess home to be with her real family - where she belongs! ❤️

Jerica Marseguerra, from Post Falls, Idaho, wants nothing more than for her daughter, Lily, to be adopted and raised by her cousins, Rachel & Trevor Templeton, in Indiana. She specifically planned an adoption with them, before Baby Lily was even born, by signing an adoption agreement in September 2021; as well as two additional consents to adoption after Lily was born in December of that year.
But over the last year, Child Protective Services and Kootenai County, Idaho have repeatedly interfered with her decision for the private adoption. They refuse to acknowledge Jerica’s right to consent to the adoption as part of her constitutionally protected parental rights - stating that they have complete decision making authority over Baby Lily until she reaches 18 years of age - despite Jerica not yet having had her parental rights terminated.
