My son and his girlfriend have given their baby up for adoption. I want to know what my rights are as far as whether I will ever be able to see her again.

unfortunately you have no legal rights. Nor do your son or his girlfriend, you are all legal strangers to the child. I'm so sorry for your loss. The only chance you have is if the adoptive parents are willing to be open with you. You could write to them and ask the agency that handled the adoption to forward it to them. If you do write to them don't be too emotional or they might think you're unstable and/or want to take their child from them. Be really careful. If they say no you can still write to your grandchild at the agency in hopes that when he/she is 18 he/she will contact the agency for info. At that time also you can ask the agency to send a letter directly to him/her. Good luck.
