Is there a law in IL concerning loss of parental right after 6 months of non-custody parent not visiting the child?

My sons ex has custody of their daughter. He has court ordered visitation every other weekend. She has refused to allow him to see her since June. If such a law exists, can the time she has ignored the court ordered visitation count against him?

He should go into court to enforce visitation. Hopefully he can document all the times he tried to do visitation and was blocked by the mother.
