Adoption Turned Custody Battle Rages for Years With No End in Sight

In 2000, a woman arranged to put her unborn baby up for adoption.

The birth mother moved in with the adoptive family after the birth. And didn’t like what she saw in the adoptive home.

The family’s other children were reportedly home-schooled and lagging socially. Two special needs children allegedly appeared neglected.

The birth mother tried to back out of her termination of parental rights and the adoption.

Since then, the case has been litigated up and down the Utah courts.

And 5 years later, there is still no decision as to who will ultimately be the boy’s parent(s).

In the meantime though, the boy is placed with the would-be adoptive parents, and has not seen his birth mother for several years.
