I have a dear friend who became pregnant in high school.Her family pretty much forced her into adoption and the agency that she went though really guilted her into doing it as well.She really regrets her decision...but luckily it is an open adoption so she does get some contact with her son.Is there anything she can do to get her child back?I know that if she had been a year older or had better support from the agency she would not have gone though with the adoption.
Most states have a 30-90 days to change your mind and after that there is no legal action you can take. Unless she can prove that she was forced and made to do the adoption against her own will.
How long has he been with his family?
If her son has been with his family for a long time would it be in his best interest to even attempt to take him?? He has most likely bonded and attached to them. Im sure your friend is hurting, has she gotten any counseling for the adoption?

I can't think of a reason why she would be able to get her child back. I also can't imagine wanting to traumatize a child you love so completely. I agree she needs some good therapy to help her cope with this loss.
