It appears to the Court from the allegations of the Petition that the Department of Children’s Services is seeking to declare Lynnon Grace Smith, DOB 04-08-2021, a voluntarily delivered child pursuant to Tenn. Code Ann. § 68-11-255 and Tenn. Code Ann. § 36-1-142.  A copy of said Petition may be obtained at the Office of the Juvenile Court Clerk of Smith County, Carthage, Tennessee, (615) 736-0500.  The child was born on April 8, 2021 in Carthage, Tennessee, at approximately 39 weeks gestation, has sandy blonde hair and bluish-grey eyes, weighed eight pounds and one ounce and appears to be of American/Caucasian descent.  The mother voluntarily delivered the child to Riverview Regional Medical Center, Carthage, Tennessee, for adoption on April 8, 2021.  The mother is believed to be of American/Caucasian descent and is believed to be from Smith County, Tennessee.  The father’s identity and whereabouts are unknown. Failure by the biological mother to seek contact with the child through the Department of Children’s Services or to revoke the voluntary delivery within thirty (30) days of the date of the last publication of this notice shall constitute abandonment of the child and of the mother’s interests, constituting grounds for termination of her parental rights.  The putative father of said child who fails to claim paternity by contacting the Department or by registering with the putative father registry within thirty (30) days of the date of the last publication of notice shall be barred from thereafter bringing any action to establish paternity of the infant.  Such failure will constitute abandonment of any right to notice of, or to a hearing in, any judicial proceeding for the adoption of such infant and that consent of such putative father shall not be required for adoption of the infant.  In the event that the biological mother or the putative father require additional information, they should contact Laura Beth Whitley, attorney for the Department of Children’s Services, 600 Hearthwood Court, Cookeville, Tennessee, 38506, 931-644-6147.  4-22-4t
