negative reviews part of a hate group,
This review is from: Family: The Good "F" Word: The Life-Changing Action Plan for Building Your Best Family (Hardcover)
The negative reviews posted are from the people who opposed the case he was helping with. That group disagrees with the SCOTUS decision allowing the pathway for an adoption. They are still bitter and hate filled. They are quite comical at this point as not many people give them much credence. Troy has done amazing work over the years and family is important to him.

"Not many people give them much credence"...clearly, Ms. Allen is talking about herself - The state attorneys general supported the biological father and ultimately came down against the SCOTUS decision: see for example: http://www.kjonline.com/news/Maine-attorn

Here's more news: Two of the supreme court justices are adoptive parents, one having adopted two children born in Ireland, a country that doesn't allow international adoption. Very questionable! In addition, the SC Justice had personal connections with the attorneys representing the prospective adoptive parents; having one attorney who served as clerk to him prior to becoming a supreme court judge, and having attended the attorney's wedding. Favoritism much? Normally this is not a matter the SCOTUS would even hear, but remand to the lower court, (So. Carolina SC) which ruled that the father should have his daughter. And he did, for two years before the prospective purchasers, um, adopters managed to finagle enough political connections to get their way and remove her from a loving and fit father without a 'best interest of the child' hearing, a normal mandate in such matters. And in spite of a report by the adoptive parent's own expert stating it would cause her trauma. Yes, Troy inserted himself into the case, supporting the separation of a child from her fit a loving father, as ruled by the courts. Not a single court found this little girls daddy unfit. She was sold to the adopters.

Robin Davis says:
PS The Federal court remanded it BACK to the State Court to review. SCOTUS did not make the decision to return her to the prospective adoptive parents. SCOTUS simply stated that the particular section of ICWA used to return her to her father did not apply in this case before remanding it back to the lower court, which then, rather than holding a hearing or having a "best interest of the child" hearing, pushed through the adoption. Which still needed to be domesticated in the state she was born in and living in.

News flash Peggy Lou! The federal government didn't order an adoption and the federal government deals with federal issues, NOT state issues. The South Carolina Supreme Court finalized the adoption, not SCOTUS. And many state laws were broken to make this happen.

People, especially women who can't have their own children and then go steal other people's children are the ones who are bitter and hate filled Peggy.
