Ms. S, an adoptive mother, recently read an article about a birth father who is suing the adoptive parents for custody of his child, who had been offered up for adoption without without the birth father's permission. Ms. S adopted her child several years later through the same agency, but she should not be worried that her child's birth father will sure her for custody.

Which of the following, if discovered to be true, would lend the most support to the conclusion above?

a) The birth mother of Ms. S's child never informed the birth father that she was pregnant, so the birth father does not know of the child's existence.

b) In the last twenty years in the state in which Ms. S lives, adoptive parents have won 90% of the cases in which birth parents have sued for custody of an adopted child.

c) The adoption in the article was completed two months before a policy was instituted by the agency requiring the signatures of both parents on the paperwork releasing the child for adoption.

d) The birth father in the case described in the article was over the age of 18 at the time the adoption was completed.

e) Ms. S adopted one child through the agency mentioned in the article and another child through a lawyer specializing in adoptions.

Therefore, the parents already knew and that is the permission requirement.

The adoption in the artical happened 2 month before the requirement, so the father's permission was not obtained. However, Ms. S adopted her child several years after that. In other words the requirement has long been in place when she made her adoption and thus the father's permission would have been obtained at the time of the adoption.
