My wife and I expressed an ongoing desire to increase our family by having a baby.
A family friend came forward and offered to be an involved donor.
We had a verbal agreement in place and it appears that he did not fully understand the role of donor (signing rights over to me to adopt, ect...) and/or changed his mind regarding the role he was to play in this agreement.
He has now informed us that he wishes to remain the father on the birth certificate but will sign sole legal and physical custody over to my wife (biological mother) and state that in the event of her death the child would not be take from me.
I don't understand!!! We would have never have agreed to co-parent with this man.
This is really tearing up our family.
I don't know how to handle this!!! I feel like my wife is having another man's baby???!!!!
I don't know if it's better to make this situation work as best as possible given the circumstances or argue his role in court....
Any comments, advice, anything would be helpful...this has consumed me for days and I feel so cut out of a family I created!
