Thank you for contacting our JA team for guidance.
Yes, the decision is appealable, but an appeal costs thousands of dollars. You may want to request a rehearing on the matter if you believe the court made errors in applying the law. Courts generally follow the recommendations of the GAL and do protect parental rights quite strictly, so there may not be anything you can do right now.
However, if you witness or know about continuing abuse or neglect, you should contact DFS right away as well as the GAL.
Please let me know if you need additional information.
