A South Carolina soldier has been reunited with his 22-month-old daughter after she was given up for adoption without his knowledge or consent when she was born.
Sgt. Terry Achane took tiny Teleah home after leaving a Provo, Utah, courtroom Friday where a judge gave him custody.
“I got my daughter back,” said 31-year-old Achane, according to The Salt Lake Tribune. “I’m very happy. It’s 22 months too long, but the wait was worth it.”
Also at the hearing were Jared and Kristi Frei, the Utah couple trying to adopt the girl. They didn’t speak to reporters Friday but have kept a blog about their efforts to adopt the baby, who was given up by her birth mother.
