What's Wrong With These People?

Clicking through various links from various adoption blogs I like led me to this story of a father diligently trying to do the legal footwork necessary to have custody of his daughter once she was born.  The mother, it seems was bent on adoption and moved around trying to avoid him and place the child without his consent.

Fiasco ensues and a judge rules he can't have custody because one of his papers, though filed on time, was not processed by the state in time to comply with state law.  Meanwhile the baby has been born and placed with a family.  People are up in arms about the mama, the actions of the state and the ruling of the judge.

What I want to know is what is WRONG with the adoptive parents?  Knowing that there is a daddy out there desperately working to comply with several states regulations so he can parent his baby, and they take the baby into their home as their forever child??? And the agency - they're still "facilitating" this?

This is the worst of what adoption can be.  Stealing babies to fill greedy arms.  Not thinking about what babies need most.

The judge should be an impartial person with compassion for all of these people. I don't see how this is in anyone's best interest.

I don't understand Sara, is the baby not biologically his? If yes, he has a RIGHT to her! Why would a court do such without her father's consent? Nigeria, she dare not try that because her own family would call her to order & the family of the father would create a messy showdown that she would be ashamed! Is there money involved in adoption?
