Highlight

A parent's parental rights, including the right to withhold consent to an adoption, may be terminated if the parent has abandoned the minor child.
A court must consider the parent's contact and communication with the child, the parent's love, care and affection toward the child, the parent's acceptance of parental obligations, whether the parent has negligently failed to perform his parental duties, and the parent's intent in deciding whether the parent has abandoned the child.
