Dad Who Wanted To Keep Baby Even Though Mother Doesn't, Finally Gets Decision From Court

A new father is saying that his daughter is being snatched away against his will in a Utah adoption case.

"It was the hardest thing I could do," 20-year-old Colby Nielsen tearfully told KUTV 2 of handing his daughter over to adoptive parents. "I couldn't even get her out of the car seat."

Nielsen said the child’s 19-year-old mother, who is his girlfriend, filed for adoption without notifying him. And even though he, both of his parents and sister want to keep the child, authorities won’t allow it.

When asked if he is capable of taking care of the baby girl, Nielsen who is studying to become a firefighter, told KUTV, "Yes, I'd do anything I could for her." The family’s lawyer says they are fighting the case and have a good chance of getting the child back.

"We are going to aggressively pursue his rights, and we are going to do so on an expedited basis,” said Attorney Wes Hutchins, a former president of the Utah Adoption Council.

He implored the adoptive parents to return the child and said that he suspected them of influencing the child’s mother into giving baby Kaylee up for adoption.

"They took this man's daughter without his knowledge or consent," said Hutchins. "That is by definition, stealing."
