TO: Kara Sue Koster, Mother and the unknown natural Father

On the 21st day of July 2006, a Petition was filed in this Court for the adoption of Jordan Skylar Koster, date of birth December 1, 2001; said Petition is set for final hearing on the 2nd day of May, 2007, at the hour of 1:30 o’clock p.m. in the District Courtroom of Judge S. Condren in the Courthouse of Rogers County, State of Oklahoma, located at 219 S. Missouri Ave., Claremore, Oklahoma.

On the 19th day of September, 2006, the Court determined and ordered that your consent to this adoption is not necessary because:

(1) Both of you have willfully failed, refused, or neglected to contribute to the support of the minor child for over a period of twelve (12) consecutive months out of the last fourteen (14) months immediately preceding the filing of the petition for adoption and application for adoption without the biological parents consent, as provided under 10 O.S. § 7505-4.2(B)(1)(2); and

(2) That both of you have willfully failed, refused or neglected to maintain a substantial and positive relationship with the minor child for a period of twelve (12) consecutive months out of the last fourteen (14) months immediately preceding the filing of the petition for adoption and the application for adoption without the biological parents consent, as provided under title 10 O.S. § 7505-4.2(H)(1) is appropriate.

YOU THEREFORE, ARE NOTIFIED THAT THE COURT WILL HEAR EVIDENCE IN SUPPORT OF AND IN OPPOSITION TO THE TERMINATION OF PARENTAL RIGHTS AND THE GRANTING OF FINAL DECREE OF ADOPTION, AT THE TIME AND PLACE SHOWN ABOVE, WHERE YOU WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE PRESENT, HAVE AN ATTORNEY AND HAVE AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE HEARD AT SAID TIME AND PLACE, AND HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE APPLICATION AND ADOPTION OF SAID MINOR CHILD BY THIS PETITIONER AS NOT BEING IN THE CHILD’S BEST INTEREST.

YOUR FAILURE TO APPEAR AT SAID HEARING SHALL CONSTITUTE A DENIAL OF YOUR INTEREST IN THE CHILD, WHICH DENIAL MAY RESULT, WITHOUT FURTHER NOTICE OF THIS PROCEEDING OR ANY SUBSEQUENT PROCEEDINGS, IN SAID CHILD’S ADOPTION WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT, THEREBY FINALLY AND ULTIMATELY TERMINATING YOUR RIGHTS TO SAID CHILD IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAW OF THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA.
