Ever so often do we hear of adoption cases where a child was placed for adoption unbeknownst to the biological father. In the case of Matt and Melanie Capobianco, a family fighting for custody of their adopted daughter, the US Supreme Court could reshape federal law on the adoption of Native American Children. Read more about this intriguing case on Fox News.
So who does Veronica belong with? Many could argue and challenge the law siding with the Capobianco's allowing their adopted daughter to return home since that is what she knows has home. However, regardless of the Indian Child Welfare Act that protects Veronica's biological father, she rightfully belongs with him. He is her blood. If he would have known about his daughter we must stand in faith that he would have kept his child and she would have never been placed for adoption. The Capobianco's knew what they were up against when adopting their daughter. Their attorney advised the couple about future issues. Bottom line, this was an illegal adoption! Now that a year has passed, Veronica has been with her father for a year. At what point do we put the law to the side and let this father raise his child? This is his daughter. Bond or no bond, the Capobiano's knew what they were up against. It is unfortunate that as adoptive parents they are left heartbroken by a child they love; however, we cannot forget that this baby girl has a father and she deserves to be with him. It is immoral to take this child away from her biological father and pass her off to a family that is not of her blood when there is a father dying to love his daughter as his own.
What are your thoughts? Should Veronica remain with her biological father or be returned to her adoptive parents?
