...On May 6, 1996, the Svenningsens signed an adoption agreement stating that they would not abandon Emily or "transfer or have [her] re-adopted," and that she would be deemed "a biological child," according to court papers in the case. The agreement also stated that Emily had the right to inherit the estate of her adopted parents, who had established a pair of trusts for their children, as well as one meant solely for Emily.
...The adoptive father died the next year; AFTER he had set up the trust funds. etc.
...In December 2003, Mrs Svenningsens took the adopted daughter to Devereux Glenholme School in Washington, Conn., a boarding school for children with special-needs. According to court papers, her lawyers talked to school administrators about putting Emily up for adoption; the school's assistant executive director, Maryann Campbell, and her husband, Fred Cass, expressed interest in adopting Emily.
...No mention of a trust fund was mentioned. A fund of well over 1 million dollars American! That is a motive to commit fraud.
...Well the newly adoptive family was told by a letter from a lawyer about the trust fund.
...The new parents sued on the behalf of Emily.
Christine Svenningsen, who has since remarried and has spent about $33 million buying 10 of the so-called Thimble Islands in the Long Island Sound, could not be reached for comment. I hope that if global warming is real, that those islands go under water.
