Thank you for your question.
The answer is No.
"If the parents are unmarried, the child is the child of his/her mother." from
Unless paternity is established and there is a Court order relating to custody, the mother has sole custody, and if you cross a State line with the child without her consent, you would likely be facing criminal prosecution. Also, the mother will be able to legally reclaim the child.
I suppose this is not the answer you had hoped for, but it would be unfair to you, and unprofessional of me, not to provide accurate information.
I hope this information is helpful.
