Is it time to go back to counseling? Please no beat downs. Just trust that I'm telling the truth. I had a child very young and I was in a very abusive relationship. I felt guilty and felt like I didn't deserve her. some friends from our church said they would help me with her and to trust them because they weren't trying to take her, just help. The father wanted me to let them adopt her. I said no. I tried so hard to get her back. But their argument was that I didn't want her.They stopped letting me see her, and eventually the court ruled in their favor because I was homeless. Dad willingly signed his rights over to them. I have never gotten over her. They took her to another state. I found her on a mutual friends page on FB. I try not to look at it, but can't help it. I woud never disrupt her life, but it's so hard knowing what happened. I will no do that!! But how do I get through this?

How could they adopt her without your ok, and I don't think they can keep you from seeing her, you could take them to court!
Unfortuantely, it is very easy to adopt a child that has been living with you. The mother was homeless, all they had to say was that she had been abandoned. It can not be fought in court. This is how my husband was able to adopt my son because his father took off to another state w/o telling me where he went. My son knows his BD but, doesn't want a relationship.
