This is a really difficult situation for everyone involved. It sounds like the young woman really struggles with her autonomy due possibly because of family pressure. I wonder if you can find a way to create a sense of empathy with the young woman's father? Possibly as a mutual role as a grandparent? It may be a situation where you have to process with him the desires of your own to be involved and if he can see a genuine love from you, it may open the possibilities of him allowing his daughter to act as an adult and make a decision to allow the father into this baby's life. I am curious if the young woman's father is resentful that his daughter became pregnant outside of wedlock, despite her being 28 years old, and this is part of the resistance? Maybe in the father's eyes it brought shame onto the family, and rather than allowing his daughter to take responsibility as a parent, herself, he is acting in a controlling and manipulative manner, out of his own hurt or disappointment?
