The Dr. Phil show did a show on Bryce Carkhuff. I have been following his story and speaking with him on his fight. Bryce is far from perfect but in my heart, I believe that he is a good man. Watching the show really made me realize how tough these folks have been on him. I remember one phone call with him. We talked about how my natural father felt at my relinquishment. He said that he felt as devastated as he did over this situation. I was exposed to his most raw emotion. He knows that he will find his daughter once she turns eighteen. He doesn't want to lose the most important moments of her life now. To know that my father probably felt this way leaves me raw and in pain.
I can not believe that her father, Dylane, actually stated that he felt his daughter was raped. Esther actually spoke up and said that she wasn't raped. She admitted to pursuing him. I was stunned that Dylane actually stated that he would have his daughter abort if he fought the adoption. From the show it was very obvious that they took advantage of this man. Took advantage and robbed him of his parenthood. Robbed his daughter the chance to know her father.
I wonder if these folks realize how angry this little girl will be once she becomes an adult. So if the adopters, Esther and her family are reading this blog, she is gonna blow big time. You denied her rights to be raised by her father. You are doing and saying every thing you can to humiliate her father. Do you realize this? You only gave him four hours with his daughter, Autumn Faith. Yes I will use the name he gave her here. That is an awesome name. It will show her strength and patience in understanding your actions.
Ms. Carkhuff, you are one hell of a woman. I absolutely loved his mother. She was so cool. She nailed it home too. I am proud of you. I pray for the both of you. I pray that the Appellant courts will listen to both of you. I hope the voice of reason fills the justices heads.
Dr. Phil had it wrong on only one account. The battle is not won yet. There will be appeals. The adoption is thus not finalized. The adopters do not have more rights to his child than he does.
Shame on Esther, her family, the adopters and the attorney involved. One day justice will prevail. Are you ready for what your actions caused?
