How do you remove a child from a home he/she has been in for near four years? Is it okay? What type of effect will this have on the child and both sets of parents? Are the video tapes out of line?
Should we care?

There are many cases where I think common sense should overrule the law. Like that case some time ago where a burglar broke into a woman's home, broke his leg, sued her and won the case. How ridiculous is that?
In this case, however, how can the biological parents not understand the damage they're doing to the kid? Sometimes it amazes me how people can be so selfish at the expense of their family. If they want a kid so bad, why don't they make another one or adopt one themselves?

They should have never agreed to give the child up for adoption if they were gonna want it back.

It appears that in many if not most cases the biological parents have right of property (so to speak). The trauma from this event to this child maybe deep and long lasting. The memories of the "parents" who bonded with him may well lead to an underlying sense of abandonment and problems with close relationships. It may well be that this child could become a signficant behavioral problem in his teen years due feelings of lonelieness and isolation. It is going to be a hard road for the biological parents if they dont seek help to process the problems they have created in both their and their childs life. :(
