According to an article at Indian Country Today Media Network, the Capobianco’s were insincere in the negotiations that were ordered by the Oklahoma Supreme Court. They would agree to something only to return the next day and change their minds. One would think this was really an effort to appear sincere to the court when obviously that wasn’t the case.
As I said previously, it is beyond comprehension that so many, even the South Carolina Supreme Court, found that Dusten Brown was intentionally deceived by his ex-fiance, Christy Maldonado and yet still Veronica has lost her family and has been placed with complete strangers. I believe, as I have witnessed the pressure a CPC put on my daughter to relinquish, Ms. Maldonado was coached and coerced into doing what she did by the adoption agency and their lawyer. I believe the Capobianco’s had knowledge of this and did everything they could to prevent Veronica Brown from growing up with her biological family. They did this for their own selfish reasons, and they continue to operate selfishly and without regard for anyone’s interest other than their own. Something my own family is all too familiar with. Something many who have lost children, grandchildren, and their own identities to adoption are familiar with.
I’ve added a few more articles at the bottom of this post.
I’m leaving this post short but with an interesting quote in the article from Indian Country.
“This is not a win for anyone,” said a Washington, D.C.-based attorney who had been monitoring the situation since January. “And certainly not for the Capobiancos, who had the force of the court system behind them, including Chief Justice John Roberts, who is now the de facto head of the U.S. adoption industry. With this case, from which he should have recused himself, his name and legacy are forever stained with the injustice that was done to Dusten Brown, his biological daughter and Indian tribes in general. He alone pushed this case before the Supreme Court.”
