If "taken away" means the the court permanently terminated parental rights or parental rights were voluntarily relinquished making the child eligible for adoption, then the answer is no; the biological parent(s) have no legal rights of any sort to the child. However, if the adoptive parents can voluntarily agree to the visitation of a biological parent without there being any action on the part of the court.

How can you get your child back after being adopted?

If you have lost your parental rights, or you gave your child up for adoption, your options for getting your child back are negligible. The only way you could ever even dream of getting your child back is to higher a lawyer and go to court and fight to get your child back. This will be a long drawn out fight because the family that adopted the child are going to fight you every step of the way, and if you had your parental rights taken away, then CPS is going to be fighting you every step of the way as well. Most times, these court cases are not going to end up the way you hope.

What are the maternal grandparent's right if child is taken from the mother?

Need more info in order to to answer. Taken by who? For what reason? Where is the father in all this? In what part, if any, do the PATERNAL grandparents enter into this? In most states, grandparent's rights are based through the parent's rights. If a parent's rights are terminated, then the grandparent's rights are also lost. Sad, but true.
