It is not possible to terminate your parental rights unless the child is either adopted by another family or the mother gets married to someone that wants to adopt the child. Until that occurs, you are financially responsible to support the child if she pursues support.
My response is based solely on the limited information contained in the question. It is not meant to substitute your attorney's advice.
I agree with attorney Silverman. I would add, that you should explore the laws of Kansas on this issue since it appears from your question that the child was conceived, born, and resides in Kansas.
