One Reason Forced This Devastated Father To Give His Daughter Up For Adoption

A Utah man was finally reunited with his daughter after her birth mother gave the one-month-old girl up for adoption. In Utah, it's legal for a biological mother to put a child up for adoption without the consent of a biological father.

Colby Nielson, 20, was denied the right to see his daughter Kaylee when she was born. Kaylee's mother decided to put Kaylee up for adoption. Nielson objected and wanted to raise the baby on his own, but the birthmother refused.

Nielson refused to sign the adoption papers, but according to Utah law, his signature isn't required. When Kaylee was 18 days old, Nielson finally got a visitation with his baby, but a court order forced him to turn her over to her adoptive parents.

The anonymous adoptive parents returned Kaylee to her birth mother days later. The two birth parents are now working out a custody agreement, which they hope they'll be able to do by Christmas without a court fight.

According to Nielson's sister Jamie, the birth mother and Nielson had dated for more than two years. The mother was being 'pushed very strongly' by her family to place Kaylee with married adoptive parents. Nielson's family is against the adoption.

"Colby loves his little girl with all his heart," wrote Jamie. "He has gone through absolute hell fighting to keep her and then losing her."
