Thicker than water

Thicker than water

DIVISIVE questions dominate the Supreme Court’s docket this year, but the most emotional decision coming down this month addresses a tug-of-war custody battle over a little girl named Veronica. In the unfortunately titled case Adoptive Couple v. Baby Girl, the court will rule on whether the biological father of a three-year-old had the legal right to reclaim his daughter after she had been given up for adoption. It’s a lose-lose situation: either the adoptive parents who raised Veronica from birth for 27 months, or her biological father, with whom she has lived since January 2012, will be heartbroken when the justices render their decision.
