Birth Fathers: Unequal Power and Myth in the Terry Achance Case

Pediatric Nursing 40 (Mar/Apr):99-102 (2014)
  Copy   BIBTEX


In the Terry Achane case, a birth father who was in the military was not notified when his child's birth mother put up their child for adoption. Birth fathers are often stereotyped as uninvolved and irresponsible, especially when they are not married to the birth mother. Terry Achane was married. The adoption agency made little effort to contact him, raising ethical issues about the roles played by the race, economic status, and perhaps religious beliefs of the adopting parents.
