  •  both parents have to consent to any adoption (1+ / 0-)

    that's why there were difficulties with these adoptions

    the fathers never consented, so the children were never available to adopt.   yet the kids were put into adoptive homes, and the fight to get them back was long and costly.

    this should never happen.  it could happen to ANYONE.   if this sort of thing is not addressed in adoption, then no one's parental rights are safe.  

     terry achane was away on active duty, and did not even know his child had been born, much less  misplaced.  his wife traveled to utah, a very adoption friendly state, to  give birth and surrender.  terry was on active duty in south carolina, and the couples' home was in texas.

    this is why federal regulation is needed.
