LANSING (AP/WWJ) – The Michigan House has voted to give biological parents a deadline to change their mind after voluntarily putting up a child for adoption.

Legislation approved Tuesday would give parents 5 days to reverse course and file a petition with a judge saying they want to keep their child. There currently is no time limit on when they can change their mind.

Parents would have to wait 24 hours after a child’s birth to consent to an adoption.
