I suggest you immediately schedule an appointment with a family law attorney. I assume you mean she is giving him up for adoption? You provided very little to go on. You need to take the legal step to legitimate your son if you want any rights.

It depends on what you mean by "give him up". If this is a biological child and the adoptive mother no longer has him, you would have to adopt him yourself, which will require an adoption attorney and, most likely, the adoptive mother's consent. The same would be the case if this is not your biological child but a child you have been raising. If custody is what you are talking about, seek the advice of a family law attorney. Either way, I hate to keep saying to see an attorney, but that is what it is going to take. Feel free to re-post or email more specifics for a better answer.
