“One day you will read about this time in your life. Never, ever for one second doubt how much I love you, how hard I fought for you or how much you mean to me. My home will always be your home and you are always welcome in it. I miss you more than words can express.”
– Dusten Brown, who surrendered custody of his biological 4-year-old daughter, Veronica, to a South Carolina couple that had adopted her and raised her until age 2. The custody fight reached the Supreme Court, which ruled in favor of the adoptive family.
