The father of a baby girl who is nearly 2 years old now, and did not even know she existed until last year is battling her adoptive parents for custody.
Army Staff Sergeant Terry Achane's wife put her up for adoption while he was away on duty and did not tell him about it until six months after he returned home.
A Utah judge has ruled the adoptive parents must hand the child over to him within 60 days. But the couple, Jared and Kristi Frei, is filing an appeal, hoping to keep their daughter.
Randi Kaye reports.
