One of the cutest babies I've ever seen. I've never been a fan of white people raising black babies unless the choice is between a home and no home.

Quote Leah Frei, Adopted Toddler, Must Be Returned To Birth Father She Hardly Knows, Judge Orders

By Lisa Belkin Posted: Updated: 12/05/2012 11:33 am EST

Eighteen-month-old Leah Frei must be returned to the father who has met her only twice, a Utah judge has ruled, in the most recent of a series of cases that accuse adoption agencies in that state of actively deceiving biological fathers.

In an opinion released on Nov. 20, and first reported by the Salt Lake Tribune today, Judge Darold McDade of Provo, Utah ruled that the girl must be returned by her adoptive parents, Jared and Kristi Frei, to her biological father, Terry Achane, within 60 days, apparently undoing a series of actions by the Adoption Center of Choice that the judge described as “utterly indefensible.”

Achane and his wife, Tira Bland, were married when Leah was conceived, but separated when she was born. (They have since divorced.) In an interview with Tribune reporter Brooke Adams, Achane describes moving to South Carolina to work as a drill instructor at Fort Jackson, thinking he would return to be with his wife when she gave birth. Instead, he said, she agreed to give the baby up for adoption and moved to Utah with the help of Center of Choice.

Why Utah?

The state has a reputation as “a magnet for those seeking to unfairly cut off opportunities for biological fathers to assert their rights to connection with their children,” Utah Supreme Court Chief Justice Christine Durham wrote back in 2009 in a case where a mother in Wyoming lied and told the father she had miscarried, then put the baby up for adoption in Utah. That was one of ten cases around that time in which adoptions went forward in Utah without the out-of-state father’s knowledge or consent.

As reporter Jerry Markon described it in the Washington Post a few years ago:

Utah is culturally conservative, and lawyers say the powerful Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, with its emphasis on family values, has strongly encouraged adoption-friendly laws. “The Utah statutes can be harsh, but they are looking at what’s best for the child: stable placements and two-parent families,” said David Hardy, a lawyer for LDS Family Services, a Mormon Church-affiliated adoption agency that is among the nation’s largest.

In all the previous cases, the mother was unmarried when the baby was born.

Achane told Adams that he attempted to block the adoption of the daughter he calls Teleah as soon as he learned what Bland had done.

In his 48-page opinion, Judge McDade wrote that he was “astonished and deeply troubled” that the agency proceeded with the adoption anyway. "Once Mr. Achane contacted the Adoption Center of Choice ... to let them know he opposed the adoption and wanted his daughter back, that should have been the end of this case," he wrote. "Likewise, when the attorney for the Adoption Center of Choice contacted Mr. Achane and confirmed that Mr. Achane would not consent to the adoptive placement, the very next conversation they should have had was what arrangements the adoption agency would be making to return Teleah to him with all due haste. That did not happen."

Adams, the social justice reporter for the Tribune, has written often on these controversies and is not convinced that this court ruling will be enough to reverse the embedded practice in the state. “Will it change Utah's adoption process?” she said in an email. “I don't know. I have written quite a few stories about the issue and the problems here. There have been some moves to improve the situation (providing a link, for example, on the state Health Department website to forms unmarried fathers must fill out). But as this story shows, there are ongoing issues.”



Finally... a White woman with some sense!


Quote "Leah Frei, Adopted Toddler, Must Be Returned To Birth Father She Hardly Knows, Judge Orders"
Shame on you, HuffPost headline writers! Mr. Achane is, always was, always will be into eternity, the *FATHER* - biologically, genetically, heart and soul, and now affirmed judicially. Neither the word "birth" nor any other prefix is necessary. Interesting that the prefix "adoptive" will always have to be appended to the kidnappers' presumed title of mother and father.
Not to mention your blatantly tear-jerking, provocative snipe "... she hardly knows." Believe me, even at the age of 18 months, this child instinctively *knows* she is not a natural child of the pasty-white Freis. All she has to hear is, "This is your *real* father" to affirm it.

Utah adoption saga: New questions as fight continues
Courts » Utah adoptive parents want order to return S. Carolina man’s child stayed.

By Brooke Adams

 

| The Salt Lake Tribune

 
First Published Dec 05 2012 07:21 Pm • Updated 5 Hours Ago
   

The Salt Lake Tribune has learned the Utah adoption agency that arranged for a married father’s child to be given up at birth is under scrutiny by state licensing officials and the adoptive parents have acted on their pledge to try to block the toddler’s return to her dad.

Ken Stettler, licensing director for the Utah Department of Health and Human Services, told the Tribune that the Adoption Center of Choice has operated under a corrective action plan since September, when its license was extended but not renewed. The action was taken because of documentation deficiencies in some case files, Stettler said.

The extension expires at the end of December, the deadline for the agency to come into compliance. But allegations in the adoption case have raised new questions and prompted additional review, Stettler said.

Meanwhile, a new legal battle is forming over the child.

Attorney Larry Jenkins, who now represents Jared and Kristi Frei, confirmed Wednesday they have filed a motion asking 4th District Judge Darold J. McDade to stay his order dismissing their adoption petition and requiring the couple to transition Terry Achane’s now 21-month old daughter to him by mid-January. Jenkins also said he is reviewing the case in anticipation of appealing McDade’s decision.

In a statement released to KUTV on Monday, the Freis claim Achane abandoned his wife before their child’s birth and has done nothing to build a relationship with the now 21-month-old girl.

"We are deeply saddened by the court’s decision to give the child back to a father she does not know at all," said the Freis, who have four biological children and two adopted children, including Leah. "We believe that the court made serious legal errors in his decision and will address these concerns with the Utah Court of Appeals."

Achane, who calls his daughter "Teleah," told The Tribune he did not attempt to send gifts or other support once he learned the Freis had his daughter because, given her age and the circumstances, he felt those gestures were unlikely to reach her or make sense to her. Achane, 31, has had two three-hour visits with her during trips to Utah for legal hearings, but otherwise the Freis have not allowed contact.

But Mark Wiser, Achane’s attorney, said the Freis have not responded to repeated attempts by Achane to connect with his daughter since the Nov. 20 ruling.

Achane "has called numerous times only to have the phone go to voice mail, or is busy," Wiser said. "He still can’t talk with his daughter. He even left his phone number and if the Freis are out on the weekends, they won’t return the call."

Achane and Tira Bland married in 2009 in Texas and learned in June 2010 she was pregnant and that the baby was due in mid-March of 2011. The couple had marital problems but were still together in January 2011 when Achane accepted a position as a drill sergeant at Fort Jackson in South Carolina. He left in mid-month to set up a home and report for duty, expecting to return to Texas for the baby’s birth.

Less than two weeks later, Bland decided to pursue an adoption; she came to Utah in mid-February and stopped communicating with Achane. Bland, who claimed her husband had abandoned her, gave birth on March 1, 2011.

Achane says he had no idea what had become of Bland or his baby until Bland contacted him in June and informed him she had placed the child for adoption. Achane immediately contacted The Adoption Center of Choice and began asserting his parental rights as the child’s father. He has since divorced Bland.

The Freis were "duped themselves, but eventually they found out what happened and they had to make a choice — do the right thing and return the child to the legal father or keep the child," said Scott Wiser, Mark’s son and part of Achane’s legal team. "It is a human tragedy. There are victims all around, but two wrongs don’t make a right."

On its website, the center claims to have facilitated about 1,400 successful adoptions since its founding in 1995. According to its corporate registration filing, it has done business under eight other names in the past, including A Heart of Gold Adoptions, An All American Adoption Agency, A Bridge Adoption Services and A Adoption with Love.

In 2005, the center incorporated as a nonprofit organization under state law, though it does not have federal tax exempt status from the Internal Revenue Service.

James C. Webb, who is currently listed as the only representative — director, officer, president, and registered agent — for the adoption center, did not return a call from The Tribune. His office referred the newspaper to Jenkins, who also represents the adoption agency.

Jenkins confirmed the business was set up as a nonprofit under Utah law.

In its incorporation filing, the center listed its purpose as a child placing agency; providing humanitarian relief and education to underprivileged children worldwide; sheltering children who do not have homes, families or both; assisting adoptive parents; and soliciting contributions.

The center, based in American Fork, has facilitated at least five other controversial adoptions that ended up in rulings by the Utah Supreme Court or Utah Court of Appeals. All of those adoptions involved unmarried fathers, unlike the current case. Each of those fathers — Victor Johnson, Frank Osborne, Buddy Pruitt, Cody O’Dea and Bryn Ayers — were unsuccessful in stopping adoptions of their biological children, mostly based on findings they acted too late under Utah law to protect their parental rights.

The center received harsh criticism in the ruling by McDade, who rebuked the agency for its failure to return Achane’s daughter to him once he realized what had happened to her.

McDade also questioned the agency’s requirement that the Freis pay an "advertising fee" of $9,800 to a marketing company, in addition to other adoption and pregnancy-related expenses it collected.

That business, Blue Sky Choice Marketing, was founded and is operated by Webb, who is the only principal listed for the firm in its corporate registration. According to that document, the marketing company is located in Cedar City and has been in business about two years.

While holding itself out as a nonprofit, the agency also requires clients to pay the advertising fee to Webb’s other company, the judge noted.
