I’d read this story about Christopher Emanuel fighting for the right to parent his child who’d been placed for adoption by the baby’s mother. The twist to his story is that he’d actually won the right to parent his child, unlike so many other fathers who lost when adoption was on the table. If you’ve read this blog for any length of time, you know I think it’s wrong for willing fathers to be shut out. All things being equal, both the mother and the father should have the right to consent or contest the adoption of their child. Ethics matter, especially in adoption.
