Re: “Baby Veronica case appealed to U.S. Supreme Court

**PER SC SUPREME COURT’S ruling on the case (where they granted baby girl Veronica to her natural father):
• Birthmother received financial assistance BEFORE and AFTER the adoption paperwork was filed
• “Initially the birth mother did not wish to identify the father, said she wanted to keep things low-key as possible for the [Appellants], because he's registered in the Cherokee tribe. It was determined that naming him would be detrimental to the adoption.”
• Prospective adoptive parents, Matt and Melanie Capobianco’s, attorney sent a letter to affirm Dusten’s (Father) Cherokee enrollment; however, the attorney’s misspelled Dusten’s name and misrepresented his birthday (emphasis added)—thus, the Cherokee Nation could not verify the father’s enrollment
• Dusten signed a paper thinking it was to grant the birthmother full rights before he (Dusten) left for a military deployment (he was leaving the country)
• Prospective Adoptive Parents (PAPs) filed for adoption 3 days after Veronica was born—waited until Jan 6, 2010 to notify the father (Dusten)—just days before his departure to serve in our military in Iraq. But, Dusten got a lawyer the very next day (Jan 7, 2010)
Events that followed:
• SC court DENIED the petition to adopt, and Ronnie was picked up by HER father to his home in Oklahoma (never adopted folks—never officially adopted—remember the financial assistance to birthmother BEFORE and AFTER paperwork was filed)
• PAPS filed with SC Supreme Court to overturn the lower court’s decision—however, they LOST as the lower court’s decision was upheld
• Now, again, in August 2012, the PAPs have re-filed their case (sigh)
Dusten and his family deserve the right to raise HIS baby girl without obstruction from discontented individuals so caught up in their own selfishness they are overlooking what is best for Ronnie. Adoption has its place, but in this case, it does not. Veronica is in her father’s household where she needs to be. Please share if you agree.
