WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A Wilmington man was shocked to find out he had a baby that had been put up for adoption. More than a year later, Greg Johns is fighting a losing battle to get custody of the now 18-month-old boy.

"I'm already a father," John said. "I'm just looking to be a daddy."

We'll share his heart-breaking story, and tell you why a judge says Johns has no parental rights.

wonderful family

I know this young man and it tears your heart out when you hear this story. It's so unfair, wrong and illegal. This child's mother should be behind bars and the adoption agency should be closed and charged with fraud. It has changed Greg completely. He was always so upbeat and happy and now he's totally focused on the son he has never seen. He would be a wonderful father, a great provider and he has a loving family who are all emotionally torn up and waiting to welcome this little guy home. I hope and pray to God something can be done to help Greg in the right direction to resolve this travesty and bring Chase home where he belongs. Please watch the report.

Dad should not have to fight for his own child!

I can not believe this story. Why did the mom not tell the Dad so they he could have raised the little guy. I think the adoption agency was totally wrong in giving the little guy away. I think that maybe it was done knowingly, perhaps someone inside the agency who wanted a friend or relative to get a baby. The right thing to do is to give the little guy to his Dad, and investigate and close down this so called "Christian agency." All who agree that the Dad should have his child (could anyone disagree?) shold keep contacting the media. This story needs national coverage. Contact CNN, Nancy Grace, etc. Hopefully, some people who have some money can help this father fight the legal battle---a battle he should not have to fight. This case is a no brainer, obviously the mom did not want her child, but Dad sure does.

a fathers chase

i know this young man well he is my nephew and godfather to my grandson his life has been turned upside down by this terrible situation i believe he should have the right to have contact with his son and be able to take him home to me it seems like the adoption agency only agenda was money they thought he would just go away but as you see that will never happen one day he will be with his son hope it will be why he can enjoy watching him grow up
