    DADDY'S LITTLE GIRL

     
    MY DAUGHTER WAS TAKEN FROM ME, AS A RESULT OF A MOTHER WHO HAD NO INTEREST IN THE PATERNAL RESPONSIBILITY MY LITTLE GIRL NEEDED SO PLACED HER UP FOR ADOPTION. AFTER NOTIFYING ME THAT I WAS THE POTENTIAL BIOLOGICAL FATHER, I WITH HELD MY CONSENT FOR THE ADOPTION THAT WAS ALREADY IN PLACE BEFORE I WAS EVEN NOTIFIED, AND TRIED TO ESTABLISH PATERNITY FROM THE BEGINNING, SINCE BEING NOTIFIED BUT THE PATERNITY PROCESS WAS PROLONGED UP TO A YEAR. I HAVEN'T HAD THE PRIVILEGE OF LEGAL COUNSEL UNTIL BEING APPOINTED LEGAL ASSISTANCE THROUGH THE JUVENILE COURT SYSTEM. FROM THE DAY MY DAUGHTER WAS BORN, HER LOCATION WAS SWIFTLY KEPT AWAY FROM ME AND MY FIANCEE, SO I COULD NOT REACH OUT TO HER OR THE POTENTIAL ADOPTIVE PARENTS, WITH WHOM MY DAUGHTER HAS BEEN RESIDING WITH SINCE BIRTH, EVEN AFTER MANY ATTEMPTS. MY DAUGHTERS MOTHER SIGNED A PAPER THAT STATES SHE'S VOLUNTARILY RELINQUISHING HER PARENTAL RIGHTS, BUT HER LAWYERS STATED THAT BECAUSE THEY HAVEN'T FILED IT YET, TECHNICALLY SHE STILL HAS HER PARENTAL RIGHTS IN TACT, SO SHE COULD STILL SAY WHERE AND WHO MY DAUGHTER STAYS WITH, BECAUSE I CONTESTED THE ADOPTION SO I INQUIRED ABOUT HOW MY DAUGHTER STILL ENDED UP IN THE CARE OF THE POTENTIAL ADOPTIVE PARENTS EVEN AFTER I CONTESTED IT AND THE BIOLOGICAL MOTHER SIGNED OVER HER RIGHTS. THAT WAS THE RESPONSE I RECEIVED. THERE ARE A LOT MORE IMPORTANT DETAILS THAT I WANT TO SHARE WITH YOU IF GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHARE MY STORY WITH THE WORLD. I PLAN TO TAKE THIS AS FAR AS POSSIBLE BECAUSE I LOST MY DAUGHTER BEFORE EVEN GIVEN THE OPPORTUNITY TO SHOW I AM A GOOD PARENT.
