Father resisted a petition by Stepfather to adopt Father's three youngest children. The district court approved the adoption over Father's objections. The Supreme Court affirmed, holding that the district court did not err in (1) calculating that arrearages in Father's child support payments; (2) failing to give Father credit for social security payments made directly to Mother as child support; (3) finding Stepfather fit and competent to adopt the children; (4) failing to consider information contained in Father's answer to the petition for adoption, in Father's proposed findings of fact following the hearing in this matter, and in a letter sent to the court by Stepfather's attorney after the hearing; and (5) denying Father's motions for visitation with the children.
