There was a pleasant surprise in my inbox one day. It was an email from Kellie asking me if I would like to write a guest post for her wonderful blog. So here is my first ever blog post. I hope you enjoy it. I hope it gives you food for thought. And I appreciate any (respectful) comments.
Why I haven’t given up on Veronica Brown Capobianco*
The tide may be turning. Suing Veronica was so outrageous that the latest word is that even some of the Capobianco’s supporters in South Carolina are turning against them. It is beyond my comprehension how it took anyone this long to understand their real characters and motives, but if this outrageous lawsuit is the straw that breaks the camel’s back, it may work in our favor.
We need someone ethical in a high level position to look into this. I have not given up on Veronica Brown. Public opinion seems to be shifting in our favor. The Capobianco camp may have finally told one too many lies. Some comments on Standing our Ground for Veronica Brown say that the case is over and that we should stop talking about it and let Veronica have some peace. But I say it was the Capobianco’s who made this story public and that Ronnie has the right to have her REAL story kept out there. Wouldn’t the so-called Save Veronica Rose, or more aptly, Steal Veronica Rose (SVR) people just love it if we would shut up and go away? Well, let’s make sure that doesn’t happen. For Ronnie’s sake, we must never let our words and PICTURES be shoved under the rug. This story is in the public domain and the genie can’t be put back in the bottle.
On the day Ronnie turns 18, if she is still with the Capobianco’s, we should all show up in Fleming Island, South Carolina with signs. This would give us the chance to show our unwavering support for Dusten and Veronica, and would give all of their supporters the opportunity to meet in person. And look at Desirai Simmons. What on earth is she doing being battered from pillar to post in South Carolina foster care when she has a loving natural father and TWO biological grandmothers who want her? Desirai left her home/birth state of Oklahoma with no paperwork at all and her natural father never signed a thing. Since when did the laws change in this country that this is not considered a kidnapping?
I just can’t accept that these stories are over. They are too unjust, too unethical, and too many people are aware of them. I hope that you will join me in never giving up the fight for justice for Veronica and Desirai, and all the other children who are victims of unethical adoptions.
*I normally only use BROWN as Veronica’s last name, but in order to increase the likelihood that she will find this post I am including her adoptive surname.
