H/T Elspeth @ Breathing Grace. Apparently, a soldier in Utah has seen his daughter adopted without his consent, and those involved in the adoption have misrepresented the law as stating that a married father must show interest in his child, have misrepresented the father as having abandoned his wife, have lied about the father's whereabouts, and more. Despite the adoption agency's insistence on the adoption going through, they apparently always knew
Perhaps this is the "J" part of my "INTJ" personality, but my personal take here is that the ex-wife needs to be sent to jail for perjury, and the lawyers for the adoption agency and the adoptive family need to be disciplined--misrepresenting the clear meaning of the law to this family is putting two families through Hell. If the misrepresentation is particularly egregious, I would favor disbarring the lawyers.
And the adoption agency? Well, for starters, their part in the matter justifies a large compensation to the father, and if I were the state agency governing adoptions, I'd be asking for a look into their records to see how many other fathers have been wrongly deprived of their children.
