Adoption Child Custody Battle, a landmark case. Kirsty sits down with Stacey Doss, an incredible woman who has spent the past 4 years in a bitter custody battle fighting to keep her little girl whom she's raised since birth. One million dollars later, with mounting legal fees that forced her to file for bankruptcy, she shares her story with us on Kirsty TV.
Operation Vanessa was launched to help fight for the rights of children. Stacey's case was a landmark win in the area of 'adopted parent vs biological parent'. Today, she has custody not adoption, which always hangs over her head. Nevertheless, she shows unwithering courage in this long fight.
As I learned through interviewing Stacey, many children were not being protected and the US court system doesn't currently have a law that protects the best interest of the child. It focuses on the biological parent not who or what is best. There are children being placed back in the hands of dangerous people who have little to no interest of lovingly raising a child. It's scary and heartbreaking and more needs to be done as there are so many people out there who want a child and would take care of them.
