Dad Wins Custody of Baby Daughter After His Wife Secretly Gave Her Up For Adoption
Terry Achane, a 31-year old man from South Carolina, has won a long legal battle to gain back custody of his 21-month-old daughter after his wife secretly put her up for adoption without telling him. The baby was placed with a family in Utah, but a judge has ordered the adoptive parents to return her to him within the next 60 days. In a 48-page ruling, the judge condemned the adoption agency that handled the case for refusing to disclose any information to him nearly two years ago when he learned that his child had been given away without his consent.
The man says that he left his pregnant wife for a new job out of state, and just a few days later she quietly signed over their unborn baby to another family. The family in Utah accused him of abandoning both the mother and baby during her pregnancy, and therefore demonstrating no capability for raising the girl. But that judge has already ruled that the baby is going back to her biological daddy!
