23-year-old Arizona man discovered that his former fiancée was pregnant just three weeks before the baby was due, when an adoption-agency lawyer called and asked if he would consent to have his baby adopted. Despite the fact he didn't consent he lost his parental rights because of his failure to file with a state registry for unwed fathers — something he learned of only after it was too late.
