Brown On Veronica Handover: "More Painful Than Words"

Posted: Updated:

A legal battle could be adding insult to injury for Dusten Brown.

This week he was forced to give his biological daughter Veronica back to her adoptive parents.

Now he may be getting sued over legal fees.

We're getting word that the South Carolina court system may pursue that case.

They could ask Brown to pay legal fees of the adoptive parents.

The decision to handover Veronica Monday ended a lengthy-court battle.

It involved the Cherokee Nation, because Brown is a member of that tribe.

Brown released the following statement Thursday night:

"The last few days without Veronica in our home have been more painful than words can describe. We are heartbroken at the loss of our daughter. I moved heaven and earth for two years to bring Veronica home to her family where she belongs. And when I finally picked her up for the journey back to Oklahoma two years ago, we looked into each other's eyes and it was like we had always been together. That bond was instantaneous, and nothing can break it. Veronica is my child, my flesh and blood, and I love her more than life itself. And to our daughter, Veronica—Mommy and Daddy love you and miss you so much, and we cannot wait until we see you again. We will see you again."
