Hi, my name is David, in 2002 while facing a 2 year term in Prison out of state, and after my ex-wife terminated her parental rights, I fought for My daughter Andrea (Age 7 now) for a few months before giving up, and terminating my rights so she could be adopted. This was in Flordia, I was going to be extidited back to Arizona. The family seemed so nice, and careing. I aggreed to terminate my rights when they agreed to give me a picture of Andi, and let me see her and hold her again! (The three months that I was in Jail waiting for AZ to pick me up they came up with every reason they could come up with not to bring Andi to visit me in Jail). After Holding her, and feeding her, I changed my mind, then My attorney blew her top at me for doing so, told me that I was going to be extridited to Arizona, and that my leaving the state, would constitute abandonment, and they would terminate my rights for that reason, That I would be better off just sighning the paperwork...so I did, and regret it every day! I Miss my little girl so much, worry about her everyday...will she hate me for giving her up? I still carry the picture they gave me. She was 10 months old. It is very worn now. I hope one day she will understand...how much daddy loves, and misses her, and how much he regrets giving up the fight for her!
