Can voluntary terminated parental rights be reversed?
In most States, there is no provision for revoking or reversing the termination of parental rights except under certain circumstances such as fraud, duress, coercion, etc. Since termination is a legal issue decided by the court, you should speak to a family law attorney with all the information about your case.

Parental rights are granted by the court system in a custodybattle. If one parent is deemed unfit to raise the children, theycan voluntarily terminate their parental rights.
YES, you can reverse your decision if it is a voluntary termination of parental rights (as in, you chose to terminate your own rights), IF AND ONLY IF, there has been no court… hearing in which that decision was finalized. There is a limbo period of time in which the termination is not "official." This is a usually a few months, but can be shorter or longer, depending on the other party's counsel and the courts. You need to act quickly! Notify the attorney in writing and also verbally that you revoke your decision to terminate your parental rights. Hire an attorney to do this, so that your attorney can verify that your revocation was received by the opposing party. If your parental rights have been terminated by an opposing party due to negative evidence against you (this is called an involunatary termination, a whole different ballgame), you can still try an appeal. There are a few grounds in which you can have the decision reversed. As always, getting a good attorney and having all your information and evidence in order is a must.
The only way that parental rights will be terminated is if both parents and the family court agree that it is in the best interest of the child to terminate them. Simply wishi…ng to stop being responsible for child support typically is not sufficient reason to terminate because it leaves the child in the position of not being cared for financially. Adoptive parents become natural parents with all the rights and responsibilities that entails the moment the adoption papers are finalized.
The grounds on which a person can voluntarily terminate parental rights are extremely limited. If you have been ordered to pay child support and you think the child is not you…rs, depending on the State the rules make it very difficult to prove non-paternity. The decision to terminate a parents rights belongs to both Parties, therefore, you cannot terminate your rights without the consent of the Mother. If the Mother has no objection and you have no objection and there is no or little attachment to the child, either by money or time-sharing, it can be done. It also depends on if the Department of Revenue or some other such collection agency for child support is involved. If you owe back support it must be paid whether the rights are terminated or not unless the Mother waives or agrees the back support was paid to her directly. Even so, if the Mother or Father received an State Assistance that all must be paid back.
Anything is possible, but not probable.

Is it possible to reverse terminating parental rights if the adoptive parents do not want to give the kid back?
The question asked here seems to indicate that parental rights have been terminated, and the child has been adopted. Now, the parent who terminated his/her rights wants to 're…verse' that decision because the adoptive parents refuse to give the child back. If that is the question, the answer is going to depend on a number of factors (was the adoption finalized? etc...). But, the short answer is more than likely no. The adoption process in most states is very fine-tuned, and designed to protect the best interests of the child, along with protecting the rights of the adoptive parents. The court does not take kindly to removing a child from his/her adoptive parents. Allowing a parent who has terminated his/her rights to simply come back in when they change their mind, would discourage individuals from adopting, as well as possibly damage a child who is being removed from the only home he/she has known. This is why terminating your parental rights is such a crucial decision that must not be taken lightly. However, adoption laws vary from state to state, and in a case such as this I recommend you seek a family attorney who can evaluate your case, and explain the law in your state.
Texas has a form, however it still requires the approval of the court which is unwilling to suspend child support in this economy. see links
Women must actually carry the child to term and give birth to it. That is why only mothers have the universal right to voluntarily give their parental rights AND financial res…ponsibilities for their child(ren). The Safe Haven Laws were specifically enacted to help prevent "prom night dumpster babies." Rather than throw the child in the trash or drown it in the toilet, she can give up her child, giving up all rights and responsibilities for said child (NO QUESTIONS ASKED) at any Hospital ER. Women and girls who give up their babies under the Safe Haven Laws almost invariably do so because neither her family nor the baby's father want the child and will not help her care for it. It is practically unheard of for a woman to give up her child under the Safe Haven Laws when the father is present and willing to care for the child. Women give up their children under Safe Haven because they have no other option. While the father can run off, never to be seen again, the woman cannot do the same since the child is growing inside her body. That is why Safe Haven Laws exist for women, but similar laws do not exist for men. Another Perspective A very good reason for the voluntary termination of parental rights is to allow the child to be adopted by an adult who wants the responsibilities and benefits of being the child's legal parent. It is commonly done when a step-parent wants to adopt their spouse's child legally. The custodial parent must consent and generally, the parent who is to relinquish their rights cannot be the petitioner.
In general, parental rights are terminated either preparatory to an adoption, or after a trial in which it is determined that the parent is unfit. In any case, termination of… parental rights does not, in itself, terminate child support.
you can't... sorry my father had his parental rights terminated you can not get them back
There are really only two ways you can voluntarily terminate your parental rights. A - The child is determined to not be yours, B - The custodial parent requests it, for …example, if they are remarrying and want you to transfer the rights to the new partner, and you agree to this. There is never any scope to terminate the rights 'just because' you want to.
