Many folks have contacted me and informed me that military couples have no problems adopting while deployed. I've been told that these deployed military personnel can audio/video conference into court hearing via Skype, etc to complete their adoption. While I think this is the goal of our society, I don't think it's been realized in today's society.

Below is a horrible story, where a serviceman's wife attempted to sell their infant.

"When Steven Garcia discovered his wife's deception, his sister tells 11 News that was the beginning of an agonizing journey to get the child back.

"The sheriff's department down there got a hold of my brother, who then got a hold of me, and we ended up having to go through this huge issue," Garrison said. "Because she had sold the baby, the state will not release the baby back to my brother. So he can't get his child back because he's overseas, and their response was he is not fit for a parent because he is in the armed forces."

Soldier's wife sells baby during deployment

The sheriff's office opinion that he cannot get his child back because he is deployed overseas is the opinion I've personally experienced both helping servicemen with custody issues and their attempts at adoption. So many governmental agencies operate as the Soldiers and Sailors Relief Act does not exist.

From the little I saw on go fund me, the baby is with the father. He was granted custody even though he's not the bio father

An Army sergeant overseas was told his baby died at birth. It was a lie and part of a cruel scheme.

I saw this... BS... Who contacted you? Who are you? Do you really have any say/power over those adoptions? I highly doubt it.

People in this situation need to see a lawyer.
