THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA TO: Clinton Buttery and/or any unnamed, biological Father and/or any other interested person.

You are notified that Jeffrey Dale Miller as step parent to the above named child, has filed a Petition before the above named Court, praying that he be allowed to adopt RayLee Ann Holland, the minor named in the caption hereof without your consent, and for final adoption.

Take notice that the Petition is on file with the Clerk of this Court; and that among other things, it is alleged in the Petition that: RayLee Ann Holland was not born to a marriage, and the biological father is unknown and further, that no one has come forward expressing interest as a Father, therefore consent to this adoption is not necessary, in that no relationship exists and/or no child support for the benefit of the child has been paid or tendered by anyone on her behalf, and that Petitioner is a proper party to adopt.

A hearing on the Petition to determine whether your consent to the adoption is necessary is set for 3 o’clock PM, on the 16th day of May, 2006, in the District Courtroom No.__, in the County Courthouse of Rogers County, in the City of Claremore, State of Oklahoma, before The Honorable D.

YOU ARE, THEREFORE, NOTIFIED THAT THE COURT WILL HEAR EVIDENCE IN SUPPORT OF AND IN OPPOSITION TO THE GRANTING OF THE APPLICATION AT THE TIME AND PLACE ABOVE SHOWN WHERE YOU WILL HAVE THE RIGHT TO BE PRESENT AND AN OPPORTUNITY TO BE HEARD AT SAID TIME AND PLACE INCLUDING THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE ADOPTION OF YOUR CHILD. YOUR FAILURE TO APPEAR AT THIS HEARING SHALL CONSTITUTE A DENIAL OF YOUR INTEREST IN YOUR CHILD WHICH DENIAL MAY RESULT, WITHOUT FURTHER NOTICE OF THIS PROCEEDING OR ANY SUBSEQUENT PROCEEDINGS, IN YOUR CHILD’S ADOPTION WITHOUT YOUR CONSENT THEREBY ULTIMATELY TERMINATING YOUR RIGHTS TO YOUR CHILD IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE LAWS OF THE STATE OF OKLAHOMA.

ANY PERSON MAY FILE A WRITTEN PROTEST IN THE CASE PRIOR TO THE DATE SET FOR HEARING.

Dated this 17th day of April, 2006.
