Update in the Salt Lake Tribune – USC decision…

Utah Supreme Court denies stay in married father’s adoption case

The Utah Supreme Court on Friday declined to stay a trial court judge’s order giving a married father custody of a child who was placed for adoption at birth without the father’s consent or knowledge. The court also set an expedited hearing for the appeal.

The high court on Tuesday had put a temporary hold on 4th District Court Judge Darold McDade’s decision giving Terry Achane custody of his 2-year-old daughter, Teleah. The toddler has lived with adoptive parents Jared and Kristi Frei since her birth.

Go read the rest of the story because I am unsure on what it means.  From what I understand, the Utah Supreme Court is going to hear the appeal, but at least they have set an expedited court date at the end of March.  It also appears that the original judge decides who Teleah stays with until then?  What a mess – who would keep a child from the legal father – especially just months after the birth, and now it is still going on.  Just not right.

Update in the Salt Lake Tribune – USC has placed a temporary hold on the judge’s order…

Utah Court puts temporary hold on returning girl to dad

The Utah Supreme Court on Tuesday put a temporary hold on a trial court judge’s order giving a married father custody of his daughter, who was placed for adoption at birth without the father’s consent or knowledge.

Terry Achane, an Army drill sergeant stationed at Fort Jackson in South Carolina, was waiting in Dallas to board a plane bound for Utah, when he got the news. A hearing set for Wednesday in Provo’s 4th District Court, during which Achane expected to get custody of Teleah, his 2-year-old daughter, was canceled.

[…]

The high court said the provisional stay on the petition for emergency relief filed by the adoptive parents would give it “the time necessary to adjudicate the request for emergency relief,” but did not indicate how long that might take.

“It could be a day or two, it could be a week,” Wiser said.

I am so stunned that the only words I have, are ones that are so not nice…all I can say is it better be top of the agenda at the USC…go read the whole article.  While you are at it, read this article that details other prospective adoptive parents dealing with the same agency…Utah adoption agency accused of leaving trail of broken dreams, emptied wallets

Update in the Salt Lake Tribune on the adoption saga – the appeal…

Utah judge upholds decision to give father custody of his child

A Utah judge on Friday refused to stay his decision giving a South Carolina father custody of his 22-month-old daughter, who was placed for adoption by his ex-wife without the man’s knowledge or consent.

Fourth District Judge Darold McDade also left intact his ruling that set a Jan. 16 deadline for the couple who now have the child to give her up.

Lance Rich, an attorney representing adoptive parents Jared and Kristi Frei, said they will ask the Utah Court of Appeals to issue a stay while they appeal McDade’s rulings.

The Freis declined to comment after the 2½-hour hearing, which McDade scheduled on short notice and closed to media. Terry Achane, the child’s father, was unable to travel to Utah for the hearing, his attorney said.

“It’s a very weighty issue for the judge,” Scott Wiser, one of Achane’s attorneys, said outside the courtroom. “It’s a difficult human case and [the judge] is trying to do the best he can with the arguments out there, the rights of the parties, and what’s best for Teleah. That was forefront in his mind, what’s in Teleah’s best interests.”

Go read the rest of the article.  And of course, they are filing yet another appeal…for goodness sakes – when will this madness end.

Utah adoption saga: New questions as fight continues

The Salt Lake Tribune has learned the Utah adoption agency that arranged for a married father’s child to be given up at birth is under scrutiny by state licensing officials and the adoptive parents have acted on their pledge to try to block the toddler’s return to her dad.

Ken Stettler, licensing director for the Utah Department of Health and Human Services, told the Tribune that the Adoption Center of Choice has operated under a corrective action plan since September, when its license was extended but not renewed. The action was taken because of documentation deficiencies in some case files, Stettler said.

Important read – more about the agency, licensing, the timeline, the appeal, the different names the agency has done business under, requirements of advertising fees paid to another company…  Very interesting…

It also includes details about helping “either” family…

Father is ready to turn page on Utah adoption horror story

A 4th District Court judge says he is “astonished and deeply troubled” by a Utah adoption agency’s deliberate move to circumvent the rights of a married man whose daughter was adopted at birth without his knowledge.

The Provo judge, while noting the birth mother had deceived her husband, the adoption agency and the prospective parents, has given the adoptive couple 60 days to give the child back.

In a 48-page ruling, Judge Darold McDade said the Adoption Center of Choice’s policy of refusing to disclose any information to Terry Achane once he learned what had happened to his baby is “utterly indefensible.”
