In a victory for adoptive parents, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled Tuesday that a federal law protecting Native American families cannot not be used as "a trump card" to block the adoption of an Indian child that would otherwise take place under South Carolina state law.
She said Mr. Brown chose to give up his parental rights so he wouldn't have to pay child support, and South Carolina law didn't require his consent for adoption.
"Matt and Melanie are part of my family, and they have treated me like part of theirs. I'm hopeful that we will all be reunited with Veronica very soon," Ms. Maldonado added.
