UPDATE: This post would not be complete without mention of the custodial interference charge. Those of us who can think and reason are also not buying the lie the Capobiancos told Dr. Phil that they are all one big, happy family for Veronica’s sake. Let’s not forget that one member of this so-called ‘family’, aka Dusten, cannot set foot in South Carolina without possibly being arrested and thrown in prison. The extradition may have been dropped but the custodial interference charge has not. How like the Capobiancos and their supporters to not mention this fly in the ointment when assuring viewers that they will honor the open adoption agreement.
An Anon left me a comment, on Improper Adoptee’s blog, telling me that I don’t know what I’m talking about.
‘They are not suing Veronica, it is the name of the court case listed on the document. Get the facts straight. It is also not the Capobianco’s suing, it is their lawyers. “
Here is my response.
One of the defendants named in the lawsuit is ‘Baby Girl, a minor under the age of 14 years’. I think we can all conclude with 100% certainty that this refers to Veronica. And it was filed by their attorneys on behalf of ‘Adoptive Couple’, who we all know are Matthew and Melanie (Duncan) Capobianco, as specifically stated in the first paragraph of the Motion. My adoptive parents were not the best, but they would never, ever, ever, in a million years, have filed a lawsuit against me as a minor.
Many of us are able to read and comprehend, and we refuse to drink the Kool-Aid the Capobianco camp keeps serving.
We also don’t believe their bogus concerns like being so worried about Veronica’s safety with her REAL father, Dusten. Safe? Safe my foot! My only safety concerns are for Veronica living with the Capobiancos. It was plain as day that Veronica was healthy, thriving, and happy as a clam when she was with her REAL father and the rest of her true family.
Nor do we believe their PR claim that Dusten won’t have to pay a dime as a result of this million dollar lawsuit. I don’t know that at all. Attorneys don’t file lawsuits on behalf of their clients with no hope or expectation of winning. The courts are already too bogged down with murderers and rapists to flood them with lawsuits that no one will win. And Dusten’s wife, Robin, will be highly compensated when she finishes her training.
All of this leads me to question why the Capobiancos are so relentless in trying to destroy Dusten, when they have already taken his child and devastated his heart and soul. And here is what I believe. Imo, it is because Dusten is the one thing standing in the way of Matt and Melanie’s delusion that they are Veronica’s REAL parents. Dusten’s very existence makes it impossible for them to ever forget that Veronica has a perfectly fit biological parent who wants to raise her, and that she was NEVER AVAILABLE for adoption. Taking a child against the will of a natural parent, under threat of violence, is not adoption, it’s legalized kidnapping.
So, in the final analysis, it is those who keep drinking the Capobianco’s Kool-Aid that need to get their facts straight, not me.
And let me just take this moment to say, my heart goes out to Dusten and Robin Brown, and the rest of the Brown family, as they spend this Christmas and New Year’s Day without Veronica.
It would be perfect for Matt and Melanie if Dusten were locked up. That would give them five years to indoctrinate Veronica that they are her real parents and that her biological father abandoned her. They could not only take his child, and rip his heart from his chest in the process, and potentially destroy him financially, but they could also physically cage him so that he would be no threat at all. I don’t know what infuriates me more, the Capobiancos for doing all of this or the legal system for allowing it.
