Wife Gives Baby Away To Adoption Agency While Husband Is On Active Duty


In one the most heartbreaking stories of 2012, Terry Archane, a military father, finds out his new-born baby, Teleah, is given away by his then-wife to an adoption agency that transfers his child to a Utah couple who, despite a judge's order, refuses to give the child, now 2 years old,  to Archane.

The adoption agency knew the woman was legally married and that the consent of the father was required before an adoption could proceed.  They processed the adoption while knowing that the attorney for the agency had contacted the father, who did not give his consent, which is required by Utah law.

The adoptive couple also knew all this, and were told that if the birth father demanded his child, they would have to turn the child over to the birth father. They too proceeded anyway.

The father found out where his daughter was, asked for his child, was denied,  and then went to court to get his baby back.  The judge ruled in his favor, but the adoptive couple claim it is "God's will" that they keep the baby.

  1. An intriguing discussion is definitely worth comment. I do believe
    that you should publish more on this issue, it might not be a taboo matter but generally people
    do not discuss such subjects. To the next! Kind regards!
