Description

An investigation by KSTP-TV revealed that "in Minnesota if an unmarried man wants any say over whether his child is adopted he must put is name on something called the Father's Registry. He has 30 days after the birth to take this step. But, because this registry is seldom advertised, many men don't know it exists. (KSTP-TV) found two men who lost the right to their children because they failed to fulfill the requirements of the registry. Furthermore, (the station) found an adoption counselor guiding young women to hide from their boyfriends for 31 days to make sure they couldn't get on the registry in time to influence the adoption."
