1. Because there isn't a doubt that the mother of the child is the parent an unmarried mom has a very clear legal relationship with the child. A baby born out of wedlock usually takes domicile with the mom automatically. Here is KS the mother automatically has residential custody. 2. Depending on what state you live in the laws vary. Some states do not grant the father any rights even if a DNA test is taken. I would think that you would first have to establish paternity of the child then go from there. 3. The child is being "adopted" not "adapted," although he will have to adapt to the adoption. 4. The best thing you could do is find a good lawyer to help you. 5. You state that your rights were taken away from you. Based on the state that you are in, what rights are you speaking of? Also I'm curious which one of your constitutional rights have been violated? Good luck...

That happened to one of my husband's friends he was lucky and maintains a limited relationship with his child through visitation granted by the kindness and compassion of the adoptive family. She probably skrewed you, you most likely will not regain custody, the longer it takes the worse your chances are, if you are lucky though you can work out some sort of visitation dirictly with the adoptive family. Good luck...sorry to be such a downer, I hope you can prove me wrong.
