U.S. Couple Ordered To Return Adopted Child of 3 Years


U.S. Couple Ordered To Return Adopted Child of 3 Years

Timothy James Monahan and Jennifer Lyn Vanhorn Monahan of Liberty, Missouri were ordered by a Guatemalan court today to return their adopted daughter to her birth mother.

Judge Angelica Noemi Tellez Hernandez has ruled in favor of Survivors' Foundation, a Guatemalan human rights group that sought to overturn the adoption. The group claims  the little girl was kidnapped in 2006 and put up for adoption the next year. They say she was then adopted in Guatemala and taken to the United States using a passport under a new name in 2008.

The couple has not commented on the ruling yet.

What's best for the child, to be returned to her birth parents or to stay with her adoptive family?
