To bring my son's baby home from Iowa
Organized by: Tracy Braden
My name is Tracy Braden my son is 19 years old. His girlfriend took a pregnancy test at our house on thanksgiving an it was positive so since this time we have bought everything for this baby. The mother of this child is 17 her mother who is a drug addict took her to Iowa in June. ON July 5 2016 she gave birth to a baby boy in Iowa gave the baby up for adoption an lied an said she didn't no who the father was. Told them she had a one night stand with a guy from Rossford ohio. She called my son.and told him her mother made her do it they got in trouble with the police in Iowa an needed money to come.back to Toledo so pretty much sold.the baby but in.iowa they were given money for living expenses. the attorney handling the adoption places aN ad in the Rossford journal last week on the announcement section so we contacted this attorney an explained my so was the father. Before we found the baby we contacted an made a police report in iowa. Along with a report with children services because the mother an grandmother came back Toledo without the baby. That's how we found out the baby was put up for adoption. The attorney handling the adoption also informed us the baby is sick. We want to bring my son's baby home an it makes me sick that we have to come up with so much money to do so. When were are claiming an taking responsibility for this child. I'm off work right now do to a work related injury an waiting on workmanship comp my son works to but we don't have thousands of dollars right now.we wasn't expecting any of this . We found an attorney willing to.help us but he wants 1500 up front. An will take payments then we have to be in iowa on August third for the court hearing. I don't understand how they can get away with this. We will love an take care of this baby. An give him a good life. We have everything bought for him.already I'm asking for help with the legal expenses to get the adoption stoped. My.son wants to be this babies father. He has been so excited since he found out. I've contacted attorney here in Toledo ohio but they said they can't help it's out of there jurisdiction. I have to.hire an attorney in Iowa because the baby was born in iowa. Pleas if anyone can help us or give us advice on what to do to bring this baby home please do thank you so much. Were going to do everything we can to bring him home to his family.
