I am sorry for your situation. Yes, the grandparents have rights, but they are limited. Grandparents can be granted visitation
(ranging from a few hours each week to a few days), but that is it. You can get this by filing a Petition for Grandparents Access

Aside from this, I am sorry to say you have no other legal recourse.
