Cherokee dad says he's 'heartbroken' about losing custody of daughter, 4, to adoptive parents

A Cherokee father who lost custody of his 4-year-old daughter after a yearslong dispute with her adoptive parents says the last few days without the girl "have been more painful than words can describe."

Dusten Brown says in a statement Thursday that he's "heartbroken" about not having Veronica. Matt and Melanie Capobianco, of Charleston, S.C., were given custody Monday after the Oklahoma Supreme Court said it didn't have jurisdiction over the child.

The court dissolved a temporary court order that left Veronica with her father and his family.

Brown says he "moved heaven and earth for two years to bring Veronica home to her family where she belongs." He says "nothing can break" the bond he has with her.

The statement ends with Brown saying he'll see his daughter again.
