The South Carolina Supreme Court heard the case on April 17. Waiting on a final ruling. Veronica is in Oklahoma with her birth father and his family. They have not allowed her to see or speak with her birth mother or the adoptive family. I read somewhere earlier that he signed papers while he was deployed. He was not deployed until 5 months after she was born.

And a US Supreme Court ruling yesterday...

that seems to be excellent news for V's adoptive parents.

This poor little girl. Getting ripped from one family to the next. I hope that who ever ends up with her gets her some good counseling. She is going to need it by the time they are done fighting this out in court..

You'll notice you're only hearing one side in the media. The bio father has chosen to live quietly and obey the gag order put forth from the court. He has chosen to keep Ronnie and his family out of the spotlight. He has not asked for money from anyone.

The same can't be said for the Capobianco's.

Maybe you'd sit on your hands if your 2 year old was legally kidnapped. I wouldn't. Nor would the Copabiancos. The Supreme Court seems to be siding with them.

They are bringing unnecessary stress and attention to the situation. Let the court handle it, stop using the media (regular and social) to get sympathy. It only makes the situation worse for the girl.

Kidnapped? KIDNAPPED??

The adoption was never finalized. Mr. Brown was within the time allotted by law to petition the court for custody. Ronnie was 4 months old when this all started.

I can't have a serious conversation with someone that believes this child was kidnapped.

Time will tell.

There should be a SC Supreme Court ruling at any time. If for some reason, they ruled against the adoptive parents, it seems like a US Appeallate Court would use this exact ruling to throw it out.

My guess is she's going home.

And I guess we'll agree to disagree. He signed off on her. She was legally kidnapped in my opinion.

She is home, with her father.

Yep, the father who signed away his rights to her so he didn't have to pay child support.

He's a peach.

She's ONLY with him because of ICWA. That was the ruling that returned her. The Supreme Court ruling is about an almost identical case.

It's almost over.

You sound like this little girl is a raffle prize to be won or something. You realize this is a little girl and this tug o'war isn't healthy for her, right? You realize that by ignoring the gag order and using the media for sympathy, these people sound like they care more about winning than what is ultimately best for the girl, right?

I don't think that matters to some. In the end, it's all about winning and proving the other person wrong. Gloating in their victory while a young innocent child is left crying in the corner. It's so horrible how the well being of the child gets pushed to the side so the adults can play at their power games.

I'm sure that the Cabobianco's love this little girl and feel that it is best for her to stay in their family and home. I just think that they are going about it in a way that may very well be damaging to her.



And the kidnapping part? I agree, it's hysterical. Has to be the most ludicrous load of hyperbole in this whole thread.

at this point, her dad is the family she knows. so to take her send her back to the other family - that isn't even related to her - would be awful.
