    Where is the father?

    As it is, you don't have standing to do anything.

    You best handle this with an attorney. Both mom and dad must approve you getting her. If either are under 18 the tolling time to withdraw starts at legal age.

    Oh my, this is another sad tale.

    A mother to be doesn't want to birth the baby, allegedly.

    Her sister wants to adopt the baby.

    Sissy, God bless you, but this is never easy, and it isn't cheap.

    Is your sister MARRIED?

    How old is your sister?

    How old are you, Sissy?

    Have you discussed this with your MOTHER and/or FATHER?

    Are YOU MARRIED, Sissy?

    Is the alleged father of your sister's baby, aware of the fact that his lover (your sister) is preggers?

    Finally, Sissy, this is at best a VERY long shot, even with a lawyer.

    So, before you get too committed to this, and end up with a broken heart, discuss this with a couple lawyers in your county.

    Don't take your sister, whatever you do. Meet with the lawyers, see how expensive and hard this will be. The lawyers will meet with you the FIRST time usually for FREE.

    After you've met with the lawyers, then come back and we can discuss this a little more.

    Either parent. The tolling time to withdraw approval of an adoption petition made by a minor will not start until they reach 18 even if the paperwork has been finished and signed.
