For the mamas facing "oh, we'll take your rights away" I'd suggest you start getting the US to recognise the UN convention on the rights of the child. It lays down, VERY clearly, the fact that a child has a right to know both parents. No restrictions. It's also the best safeguard against DFS.
Rockstarsmama, an adoption will be at best problematic, at worst difficult. TBH, I wouldn't ever consider giving someone who had known me for such a short time any kind of rights over my kids- my dh got parental responsibility solely because of a health issue with ds2. If you're looking for advice, this is it. Just don't go there.
