Allison Quets, the birthmother who kidnapped her twins last year, is back in the news again. She was recently sentenced and now the judge has ruled that she will have no visitation with her twins.
During her pregnancy, Allison suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum, a condition that makes you very ill and weak. Feeling very sick and weak from that condition, Allison signed relinquishment papers terminating her parental rights to her twins, Holly and Tyler.
Not long after singing the papers, Allison changed her mind and tried to revoke her consent yet the twins were not given back. Instead, Allison spent the next two years fighting to get her children who were living in North Carolina with the couple who wanted to adopt them. She had been challenging the adoption saying that she was under extreme duress and severely ill when she relinquished the twins. The Florida courts had been upholding the adoption but had given her court ordered visits with her twins.
Allison was having one of those court scheduled visits with her then seventeen month old twins in December of 2006 when she took off with them. Instead of bringing them back to their adoptive parents in North Carolina at the appointed time, Allison fled with her babies to Canada but was then apprehended a week later.
Allison was in a North Carolina jail for over eight months before finally deciding to plead guilty to two charges of international parental kidnapping in November. Last month, Allison was sentenced to five years probation.
Allison was in court again this week trying to get the court to agree to let her have visits with her twins again but the judge denied her request stating that she had terminated her parental rights so she had no right to have visits.
