          Advice For A Young Mom Who Wants To Regain Custody Of Her Child Who Was Placed For Adoption

          July 19, 2016

          Olivia claims her newborn daughter, Evelyn, was taken away from her illegally and placed for adoption five years ago. She claims that Jyllian, the woman who adopted her daughter, promised her the opportunity to be part of her child’s life, but Olivia says Jyllian has ignored her attempts to make contact.

          Olivia says that she believes Jyllian is an unfit mother, after finding pictures of her online that she claims show Jyllian to be a ‘provocative’ party girl, and she admits that she has written negative things about Jyllian on the Internet.
