The response on social media has been overwhelming with thousands of comments from people heartbroken for Dusten Brown.
Bessie wrote on the FOX23 Facebook page: "You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I could not begin to imagine the emptiness that you feel over not having your precious daughter in your arms. One day she will be back in your arms."
Angela echoed that, writing: "That takes such a strong person to do what he just did. No matter your feelings on this case, you can't see that and doubt his love for her. Blessings and prayers to you, Dusten, as you go forward."
A photo was posted on the Facebook site called "Standing Our Ground for Veronica Brown" with the following comment:
"I imagine her red car bigger, her bags packed. She will be sick of cookies by then so she'll bring other snacks. She will head home, to Oklahoma."
Kim wrote: "Believe me one day that beautiful little girl will finally see all that has transpired and will be back home on her own terms."
And Meagan: "Well I’ve got tears streaming down my face at work. I hope someday this man gets his baby back."
Others though are just ready for all of this to be over.
Robert writing: "Will this story ever go away?"
And another Megan: "I personally feel, as someone who is adopted, let it be...if we don't let this go it will eventually hurt her more in the end. Just let the baby be and live her life!!!!"
