To answer your question. i know this answer all too well. I am a single mom of two children. I have been divorced for 5 years and my ex husband has missed out on his children's lives so many times I have stopped counting. Our divorce papers state that he is to get his children every other weekend, and call them twice a week. Well, he is not consistant with the visits, and the phone calls to the children have stopped over 4 years ago. And I got so mad at him b/c my children was the ones hurting and crying all the time asking me questions that I had no answers to give them. So, I went to one of my court dates, and I asked the judge right in front of their father about can he sign his rights over and I explained the reason why I wanted this done. And the judge told me that the only way I could have his rights taken away was if I was with someone that wanted to adopt my children, and then the judge would make his decision then.
