Is the person you are trying to contact your child, or was the child adopted and you no longer have custody?

what can i do

Customer: replied 7 years ago.
are u still there
Expert:  P. Simmons replied 7 years ago.
If you no longer have custody, you may have some problems. If you do not have a legal right to contact the minor, the parents of the child can take steps to prevent you from contacting their child, including filing a restraining order. You can attempt to challenge the order, but based on what you have said, I do not expect a judge would allow this.   The legal parents have the right to control whom their child sees.    Sorry to bear bad news

You could try but it would not serve any purpose. I suspect they are not trying to contact you, but trying to prevent you from contacting them (and their adopted child)
