Charleston, SC (WCSC) - The biological father of "Baby Veronica" issued a statement Thursday addressing the public for the first time since turning over his daughter to her adoptive parents.

Days after Dusten Brown complied with a court-order to hand the 4 year old over to the Capobianco family of James Island, Brown says he is "heartbroken."

In a statement released on Thursday, Brown says, 

"The last few days without Veronica in our home have been more painful than words can describe. We are heartbroken at the loss of our daughter. I moved heaven and earth for two years to bring Veronica home to her family where she belongs. And when I finally picked her up for the journey back to Oklahoma two years ago, we looked into each other's eyes and it was like we had always been together. That bond was instantaneous, and nothing can break it. Veronica is my child, my flesh and blood, and I love her more than life itself. And to our daughter, Veronica—Mommy and Daddy love you and miss you so much, and we cannot wait until we see you again. We will see you again."

The statement was signed "Dusten and Robin Brown."
