Some people, on the Brown family support page, are posting that they think Dusten will announce the lawsuits are being dropped in the hope of being able to visit with V. It would be nice to hear whether or not V has even been allowed to talk with him since she has been with the Cs. There has still been no news of the Cs returning to their home although there was some speculation that they may be staying elsewhere in their hometown so one or both of them could return to work.

Samantha Franklin, an OK adoption expert, who wrote a letter to the OKSC on behalf of Dusten posted a comment, in the comment section, of the Tulsa World article. She said she is so thankful that Dusten is NOT giving up.

He may have worked put something that will include their dropping the half million suit, in exchange for him dropping his suits.

I hope he is not actually naive enough to believe they will let him contact his daughter. From what I've seen of them, and other cases, they will *never* let him contact her. Not in any way, ever. They will believe they are justified. I'd take dollar bets on that from anyone, and I don't usually bet over a quarter.

You know what my stepson used to day he wanted for custody, when he was about Veronica's age? "One day with mom, one day with dad." That was after he had begged us to let him live with us full time, after he knew we had lost in court. At first I didn't get it, how could he want so much moving? Eventually I understood, through a child's eyes.

That was said to speak to the depth of her need to communicate with her biological father and family in Oklahoma.

The C;s can't let Dusten see Veronica now. She won't want to leave him and they'll be proven wrong.

He offered to give them most of the year, with him getting summers and alternating Christmas, and they refused. They aren't letting him see her. Yet another thing that they will have to explain to her as she ages.

Especially with the information out there about open adoptions. They'll have to come up with some kind of story. So will the birth mother who was part of it.

Surprising coincidence one day after Dusten news conference announced and per article they have been home for a while???
Capobiancos ask for privacy as they return home to James Island with Veronica – The Post and Courier

In other news...
Birth father says legal fight over “Baby Veronica” not over

Apparently you can hear the news conference here at 10:00 AM...
Live at 10 a.m.: Baby Veronica Update from Dusten Brown, Cheroke - KTUL.com - Tulsa, Oklahoma - News, Weather & Sports

(love twitter btw)

Kind regards,

Dusten Brown and Cherokee Nation officials announced this morning they are dropping all further legal efforts to win back custody of his biological daughter, 4-year-old Veronica.

During a press conference in Oklahoma, they also appealed to Veronica’s adoptive parents, Matt and Melanie Capobianco of James Island, to drop efforts to pursue contempt charges against Brown and convince South Carolina officials to drop a pending criminal charge of custodial interference.

Tears are streaming. And that is a father's love. Not once did I see the same love and emotion from the C's. I hope that someone copies this to youtube so Veronica will see it when she is older.

I believe that they will change her name (as per some other articles that have been written). Having adopted a child that age, honestly, if they "work it well" she is liable to actually remember very little. And if her name is changed, her ability to google effectively will be hampered for a long time.

Her father has shown true love -- he has fought for her for years, and he lost. He shouldn't have -- its an evil that he did. BUT he did. She will carry so much pain - and that is so sad.

It is a surprising coincidence!

It was good to read that V has been allowed to talk with her father, perhaps since the Cs no longer have to worry about appeals, they will continue to let her talk with him. The odds of him having anything but short supervised visits with her is pretty slim.

He was Solomon... Da**!!! They truly don't care about her; it's all about what they feel they're entitled to.

The C's make me physically ill. My heart breaks for Dusten Brown. If they truly loved that little girl, they would have left her at peace with her daddy.

Privacy after they let Troy Dunn go with a camera crew to the school V was at!!! Wow!!

they let her talk to him?!?!? I wonder if she completely shut down with them...

This ought to frighten parents all over. This and baby Desiray (sp) show that a husband/wife couple with money and clout can help themselves to any child, if they so wish...

Unless she googles her adopted parents' names. Or, my guess is someone is going to ask her about it at some point and get things rolling that way.

Their best bet will be to be honest.. the good and the bad.
