Since you have been appointed by a judge to be permanent guardian, only a judge can terminate your guardianship over the child. So you would have to file a formal petition to resign from the position. This is covered under FL Statutes 744.467.
744.467 Resignation of guardian.—A guardian may resign and be relieved of his or her duties after the notice that the court may require and notice to the surety on his or her bond. Before entering an order discharging a guardian of the property, the court shall require the guardian to file a true and correct final report of his or her guardianship and to deliver to the successor guardian all property of the ward, all records concerning the property of the ward or of the guardianship, and all money due to the ward from him or her. A guardian of the person must deliver to the successor guardian copies of all records of medical or personal care, prior to being discharged. Before entering the order, the court shall be satisfied that the interest of the ward will not be placed in jeopardy by the resignation. The acceptance of the resignation shall not exonerate the guardian or the guardian’s surety from any liability previously incurred.
With that said, it is in the judge's discretion to determine whether or not to allow the resignation. So if the new family has completed their training and certification, it will go a long way towards the judge agreeing to allow you to resign.
