    Sgt. Reunited With Baby Given Up for Adoption

    Sgt. Reunited With Baby Given Up for Adoption - Yahoo!

    An army drill sergeant whose estranged wife put his daughter up for adoption without his knowledge or permission while he was stationed in another state, has been reunited with the little girl, following a nearly two-year battle to get her back.

    Sounds to ne like they have not been reunited yet. Hopefully the two sides can come to some kind of compromise, but the girl is well-loved either way it appears.

    This is very sad. I hope the woman goes to jail for a long time. Just imagine what this did to the family who'd adopted the baby...just imagine. Somebody screwed up for THIS to happen -- besides just the mother.

    Besides, just the mother? Who else screwed this up?
    - There was never a good war, or a bad peace.
    - Idealistically, everything should work as you planed it to. Realistically, it depends on how idealistic you are as to the measure of success.
    - Better to be a pessimist before, and an optimist afterwords.

    I would also be very curious to know how a mother can put a child up for adoption without the fathers consent?

    This case still breaks my teeth. The adoptive couple are the only parents this child has ever known. The girl's biological father was never presented the child by her mother, after they were separated and after she had threatened to abort the child. Other than biologically, there is no basis upon which to call him the father of the little girl.

    The biological father isn't always known. It's easy enough to claim that he isn't-- even if the biological mother was married to him.

    That makes no sense at all. It would only take a little bit of investigation on behalf of the adoption agency to find out the child also has a father. This woman should be charged with kidnapping at the very least.

    Are you serious!!!!!!! This man has every right to HIS child. If the woman choose to withold the knowledge of the childs birth to the father then how is he to claim his rights as a father. FATHERS HAVE RIGHTS ALSO!!! Society brandishes men who walk away from their children as dead beat fathers... but then in the same breath, gives them no rights to be a father in these kind of situations. What a bunch of hypocritical crap!
