My daughters father kicked me out of his home while I was pregnant which caused me to move back to ATL with my mother. Ive been here since then, the whole time i was pregnant my daughters father threatened me, denied her, told me I should have had an abortion, was talking about signing over his rights... I dealt with a lot and accepted being a single mother. Unfortunately I went into labor at 26 weeks and my daughter has been in the nicu for 2 months now. Her father didnt sign the birth certificate. Now he wants joint custody of her.I live in Georgia, he lives in Texas. And I dont feel like hes fit to take care of a premature baby. He hasnt been around, he doesnt know anything about her health, he doesnt know how to care for her at all. What steps do I need to take?
