WHY WON'T VIRGINIA ENFORCE IT'S OWN COURT ORDER AND LAWS TO RETURN BABY EMMA WYATT TO HER RIGHTFUL BIRTH FATHER?
John Wyatt was awarded legal permanent custody issued by a Virginia Court dated December 11, 2009, ordering Baby Emma to be returned home immediately. The Court Order reads in part:
". . . Virginia is the appropriate jurisdiction as the 'Home State' of the child pursuant to both the UCCJEA and the PKPA (Parental Kidnapping Prevention Act 28 U. S. C. 1738 (A)."
". . . it is further ORDERED that the Commissioner of the Virginia Department of Social Services and the Compact Administrator for the Interstate Compact for the Placement of Children for the Commonwealth of Virginia be, and hereby is, ORDERED to provide any available assistance within his authority to cause the immediate and forthwith return of the child to the Commonwealth of Virginia, and to the father. Signed: The Hon. Gerald F. Daltan, 12/11/09"
Further, Utah refuses to comply with the Virginia Court Order. This issue is about CUSTODY of Baby Emma, not adoption. John never consented to adoption. She was taken to Utah without his knowledge.
John filed for CUSTODY February 18, 2009, 5 days before ANY adoption paperwork was filed in Utah. Utah must honor Virginia's laws and also abide by the Full Faith and Credit Clause, Article 4 Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution.
Utah Attorney General Mark Shurtleff said in the interview with Kate Snow on Dateline:
Kate Snow: "A Virginia Court did find in John Wyatt's favor. "
Mark Shurtleff: " Right."
Kate Snow: "Why does Utah not recognize that?"
Mark Shurtleff: "Why does Virginia not recognize our law, I mean, that's, that's the problem. That's the debate that you have."
Kate Snow: "So he's out of luck."
Mark Shurtleff: "That's right. That's where the adoption occurred, and that's where the child is now, and that's the law that applies. I don't, I don't want to say so sad--you know--too bad--that's not my attitude with this father. I hurt for the father but we have to have laws and rules in place so that we have consistency in the application of the laws and that's what we think is provided here."
There is no adoption in place. Baby Emma must come home to her birth father. She has a right to be loved and raised by her God-given father!
Keep praying and calling and writing Virginia and Utah officials. We will never give up until Baby Emma Wyatt is home!

Virginia Supreme Court Opinion Re Tortious Interference
with Parental Rights issued April 20, 2012:
"It is both astonishing and profoundly disturbing that in this case, a biological mother and her parents, with the aid of two licensed attorneys and an adoption agency, could intentionally act to prevent a biological father — who is in no way alleged to be an unfit parent — from legally establishing his parental rights and gaining custody of a child whom the mother did not want to keep, and that this father would have no recourse in the law," the majority said."
