Adoptive mother applauds Supreme Court decision

Posted: Updated:

CARTHAGE, Mo. (AP) - A Missouri family says a U.S. Supreme Court decision not to hear the appeal of the biological mother of their adopted son ends a seven-year ordeal.

Melinda Moser of Carthage says 7-year-old Jamison told her he was ready to go to Washington and talk to the justices if necessary to stay with the family who adopted him before his first birthday.

The Joplin Globe ( ) reports Jamison's biological mother, Encarnacion Bail Romero of Guatemala, was seeking to overturn a decision terminating her parental rights.

Romero was arrested in May 2007 in an immigration raid at a Barry County poultry processing plant. She left the child with her brother, who turned him over to a sister, who left him with a Carthage couple who agreed to the adoption by the Mosers.
