WRIGHT, J. Today we are asked to evaluate R.C. 3107.07(A) in order to determine the legislature's intended meaning of the terms communicate and without justifiable cause. Until now, this court has not taken the opportunity to appraise this statutory provision to establish when parental consent to adoption is or is not required under such facts as are presented herein. However, a number of appellate courts have assessed this provision in situations apposite to the case at bar. See In re Adoption of Anthony (1982), 5 Ohio App.3d 60; In re Adoption of Salisbury (1982), 5 Ohio App.3d 65; In re Adoption of Hupp (1982), 9 Ohio App.3s128; In re Adoption of Smith (Apr. 22, 1981), Preble App. No. CA 287, unreported. These cases are instructive to our analysis.
