    Default Judge orders adopted baby returned to bio Dad

    Judge Orders Adopted Baby Returned to Soldier Dad - ABC News

    What do you think? Should the baby stay with her adopted family, or be returned to her father?

    She should be returned to her father. The adoption agency knew within WEEKS of the birth that he did not consent to the adoption, if not before. That information should have been passed on to the adoptive parents, and if they still continued with the adoption knowing that the father was contesting it within weeks, it is their fault that they purposely kept the baby and grew attached.

    This article has more information. These adoptive parents knew from the beginning that he had not consented. Then it took over a year for a hearing? He not only deserves to get his child back he should be awarded damages if that were possible.

    The adoption agency informed the Freis that the father did not know his daughter had been placed for adoption in Utah and it was likely he would contest the placement if he found out. The Freis, the judge noted in his ruling, "acknowledged this risk but decided they wanted to proceed forward with the adoptive placement anyway."
    An attorney later contacted Achane, confirmed an adoption was in process and asked for his consent. Achane refused and told the attorney he wanted his daughter returned to him.

    Instead, the Freis proceeded with the adoption. In their adoption petition, filed in July 2011, the couple acknowledged Achane was married to Bland when the child was conceived and born and that he had never consented to the adoption. They asked that his parental rights be terminated because he "abandoned the natural mother during her pregnancy" and "had not developed a substantial relationship" or otherwise taken responsibility for his daughter.

    Achane intervened in the case and in October, more than a year later, a two-day hearing finally took place.

    He has a right to this child. I find it hard to believe that the agency couldn't find him as my understanding is with the military they can track down someone on base (I know we've had this discussion before on here at some point where we talked about garnishing wages for C.S.) fairly easily.

    I think the adoption agency didn't care about his opinion. I think the adoptive parents knew he didn't know and figured it wouldn't matter which was a huge risk. I don't doubt that they are attached and love this child but they took that risk on.

    I was hoping this would be about Baby Emma Wyatt - same story, different father.

    I've watched a few specials on this UT adoption scam and it makes me livid!

    On one of the specials, it said the bio-dad has 20 days to file papers in UT. In the Emma Wyatt case, a text message from the bio-mom saying something like "I am exploring adoption" served as noticed thus starting the 20-day clock ticking. The baby was born in VA and the dad immediately filed for custody in the state of VA - which he was granted. Too late. The baby was placed with a UT couple and that was that. UT courts said too bad. He's been fighting since Feb. 2009!

    Another bio-dad on the show had evidence he did file within the 20 days. The date-stamp on the paperwork was literally crossed out and another date after the deadline was written by hand. He still didn't have his child as of the time I saw the special.

    In this case in the OP, this man was married to the mother. How does this happen? How can men be denied their parental rights so easily in a state? Well....pretty much because they value a traditional family unit over single parents and single dads.

    He absolutely should have his child. I can't imagine if the reverse of this happened. Man kidnaps baby and turns him/her over for adoption and then having the mother have to fight for 4 years to try to get custody back.

    Wow! It just gets better and better doesn't it? The wife committed fraud and should be thrown in jail. This man is in the military. IIRC, they can get into serious s*** if they truly abandon their family. It would be really interesting to see all the records of emails, text messages, joint bank accounts.

    Who has the nerve to go to the courts and have his parental rights terminated?

    On a lighter note, I am currently reading the 2nd article you posted Gloria and I had to chuckle when this man in the armed forces has the response to her being in Utah as "Where is Utah?" hahaha. Giggle of the day.

    I found their blog this morning after reading the article. The comments on some of the articles mentioned that they removed a bunch of false allegations about the father that they had written there. It is sick that they are asking for donations to keep appealing this case. The good thing is the donation amount is the same as it was this morning so it looks like no one is donating now, though I guess they must have previously. Hopefully those that donated didn't know all the details. I hope they are inundated with emails telling them to let this baby go home to her father.

    Ya who would expect their wife to randomly take off from Texas and go to Utah to give birth? It is obvious she was deliberately trying to hide the baby from him. That is so wrong.

    haha that's not what I meant. I found it funny that he acted like he didn't know where Utah was

    Yeah I would never expect that he would know that. Wife was legitimately trying to hide it from him.
