No final decree of adoption shall be challenged by reason of fraud or jurisdictional or substantial procedural error after the expiration of one year following the entry of the final decree unless the affected parent did not learn of the basis for challenging the decree until after one year. In such circumstances, the parent will be entitled to a period of three months from the date of discovery of the facts underlying the reasons for reversal to file a petition requesting annulment of the adoption.
