Agree 100%. My wife and I have adopted two newborns - it is part of the deal is you have the 30 day window of sitting on pins and needles, waiting to see what happens.I am an adoptive parent. Both of our children were taken home with the knowledge that the birthfather's rights needed to still be terminated within 30 days via filing through the birthfather registry. Both of ours, fortunately, were terminated. Let me just say that if either of our children were taken away from us, I'm not sure if I'd want to continue living. So I feel an enormous amount of compassion for the adoptive parents. I also feel deeply for the boy. That all being said, if I was notified that the child's birthfather contested the adoption within a month, as painful as it would have been, I would have turned him over when this first started. We can't really talke here about whether the birthfather will make a good father, we don't know. But he did what he needed to do legally.
If the birthfather asserts his rights, it is his child if he can prove fatherhood.
You know that going into the process.
