IMO there are some instances in which the mother -or custodial parent- has the right to give a child up for adoption after birth, in rape, if the other parent hasn't been around and has essentially abandoned the child, but this doesn't seem to be the issue in this scenario. To be honest, I'm a little surprised/confused as to how the mother was able to give the baby up for adoption if she was still married to the child's father? Isn't a woman's husband by default listed as a child's father, and thus automatically given parental rights? If so, how could she legally adopt out the child without the father having signed away his parental rights? This sounds like kidnapping through an adoption agency to me.
