It's a big win for fathers everywhere! Sgt. Terry Achane, the soldier dad who made headlines last year when his wife put up their daughter for adoption without telling him, has gotten his baby back!
According to Cafemom, the ruling from a Utah court reverses the adoption of Teleah Achane (the child) by Jared and Kristi Frei (the adoptive parents), who were able to adopt the little girl they called Leah based only on the consent of mother Tira Bland.
Bland is now Achane's ex-wife, and it turns out she had allegedly told Achane she was going to have an abortion while he was stationed at a United States Army base in South Carolina.
Instead she gave birth to a baby girl in Utah while Achane was serving our country on active duty, and court documents show she provided an old address for the adoption agency to reach him.
When that (naturally) didn't work, the agency pushed the adoption by the Freis through the system.
The judge's decision to return the little girl to her biological dad doesn't fix all the wrong that's been done. The Freis have been hurt. Terry Achane has been hurt. This little girl is no doubt going to be confused and hurt for at least awhile as she adapts to life with the dad she never got to know.
But the most important thing about this situation: a bad story turns good. Thank the Lord!
