What about your child's rights?? Her right to know, and have as a part of her life, her father?

Is he currently acknowledged as the child's legal father (ie on the b.c., had DNA testing, signed an affidavit of paternity)?

While he can't "just take her" (well, he could but that would open up a whole other can of worms for him) he can go to court and obtain a legal order giving him the right to parenting time, etc.
Is there any current order in regards to the child?
