I am just another 'lowly' User/Patron ...
[ And, I happen to be a Member of the Church ... ]
Just so that you are aware ...
This is an ongoing dilemma, for many Members of the Church.
The matter, has been canvased, on numerous occasions, in the various 'iterations' for the 'FamilySearch' Forums.
One does not really have to be too concerned ...
We have been advised, that regardless if "Ordinances" are done 'Out of Sequence', not to worry; as, those "Ordinances" that are done 'Out of Sequence' simply DO NOT take effect, UNTIL the prerequisite "Ordinances" are "Completed".
And, most importantly ...
"Ordinances" that are done 'Out of Sequence' DO NOT have to be done again; as, they are STILL "Valid".
Here are some "Knowledge Articles" in 'FamilySearch':
Which states, among other things:
Vicarious ordinances performed out of sequence are valid, but they become effective only after the prerequisite ordinances are completed.
Although vicarious ordinances performed out of sequence are valid, they become effective only after the prerequisite ordinances are completed.
Of course ...
Where it states, among other things:
Most IMPORTANTLY ...
In one of the aforementioned "Knowledge Article":
It is preferable to have the ordinances done in sequence
[ Note: The Words ... It is preferable ]
In the other of the aforementioned "Knowledge Article":
It also states, among other things:
The FamilySearch Family Tree website does not clear ordinances if prerequisite ordinances have not been cleared or performed.
[ And ]
[ Note: The Words ... Whenever possible ]
So, basically ...
The choice is yours.
For the "Sealing to Parents" for a Child ...
Remember, that the "Temple" Work, relates to the Child; and, NOT, the to Parents.
That Said ...
Regardless, of the status, of "Temple" Work of the Parents, the "Sealing to Parents" for a Child CAN be undertaken.
I know that this might not give you comfort and address your concerns; but, I hope that this gives you some more, insight; and, perspective.

A child-to-parents sealing can be performed even if the parents’ individual work and sealing to each other have not been completed. The ordinance is valid, but it becomes effective only after the prerequisite ordinances for the parents are completed.
