Such a sad story and in the end the little girl is the one who is really going to be damaged and the one losing in all of it. Being ripped back and forth has to be so confusing for her.

In the original OP it mentioned that if the birth parents had returned the child at 4 months when the father petitioned for custody that she would have been placed in foster care. Why? If the father is granted custody of his daughter, why would he not take her home? If, for some legal reason she did end up in foster care, I don't believe it would have been for very long at all and in the end would have been less traumatic for her.

Adoption is a risky road and having one or both of the parents change their mind is a risk that comes with it. I can't imagine how painful it must be to have that happen, but I think fighting it and dragging it on for years is only going to make it even more difficult.

I don't like why they throw in the fact that he was going to be deploying to Iraq shortly after petitioning for custody. What does that have to do with anything? Are we to assume he will be a horrible parent because he will be off fighting for his country? I'm sure he had suitable arrangements for her care in his absence (probably his parents?). That shouldn't even be part of the story.
