  • what mommytobe said, sounds like she didn't even try to contact him. if your bf doesn't have a relationship with the child he should at least get a fair chance at it

  • she said that he can because she posted an ad in the paper for three weeks and he never replied to it but the ad was posted in the paper where she lives not where we live

  • In my state, if she's put it in the paper and he's had no contact for 6 months she can have his rights taken away and let the new husband adopt. Your husband should contact whatever city their in family court or juvenile court and see if they can help.

  • She is lieing, he has to sign his rights away! They cannot just take the child from him unless they can prove the is un-fit father! The whole news paper thing is mainly for divorce!
