This isn't going to make me sounds good. But here goes.
The woman I allegedly got pregnant went to prison soon after telling me. When we met I was separated. We agreed to keep it secret and give the child up for adoption. She has two children; one in foster care
, the other I believe lives with the father, having terminated her parental rights
. I have no interest in being a father. Adoption seemed like the best course to give the child a loving, supportive home.
Once she was in prison we moved forward with the adoption proceedings, and it was going well. We found a great family that we both loved. Everything was set up. But a few days before the baby was born she backed out. Reluctantly, I just let it go and hoped for the best. I the meantime, for the past year, I've been supporting her in prison; keeping her phone on, and sending her money.
Once the baby was born DFS started sniffing around about me. She never gave up my name. But she slipped and told it to the foster mom one day. Today my wife opened a letter for a court ordered paternity test
. Suffice to say that didn't go well.
gets out of prison on Wednesday. I'm picking her up and she's going into a halfway house. She desperately wants to raise the child and take him to live in Texas with the rest of her family. I support that.
But now I have no idea what to do.
