Baby Vanessa Update

I've blogged about this case. between Benjamin Mills, father, and Stacey Doss, foster mother.

The latest news is that a lawyer says mediation has been unsuccessful between a California woman trying to adopt a toddler and Benjamin Mills, the father from Ohio who is trying to stop the adoption. Richard Hempfling says his client, Stacey Doss, has been in Dayton for mediation involving 2-year-old Vanessa.

Montgomery County Juvenile Court Judge Nick Kuntz on Friday urged further negotiations and rescheduled a custody hearing for December.

Doss, of Rancho Santa Margarita, Calif., in July was granted an emergency block of a court order that required the girl to be sent back to Ohio. 

Father Benjamin Mills Jr., of Dayton, filed for custody in Ohio in 2008 before the adoption was finalized. A spokeswoman for his attorneys at Legal Aid of Western Ohio declined comment.
