Young Dad Wins Back Custody of Child Adopted Without Consent

26-year-old Jeremiah Sampson waged a three-year court battle that forced him to drop out of college to pay for legal expenses in gaining custody of his child.
Sampson drove five hours to Rolla, Mo., once or twice a week for more than six months to challenge the adoption in court. The adoptive parents threw a towel over the baby’s head in court, refusing to let him look at his birth father.
Born and raised in Coweta, Oklahoma, Sampson had four older brothers, three sisters and a mother who worked two jobs to support them all. He didn’t meet his father until he was 13 and hasn’t seen him much since. “I would never do that to my own flesh and blood,” Sampson said. “I would never walk away from my own child.”
Sampson is now suing the adoption agency for violating his parental rights by going ahead with the placement even after he objected.

TIPS & TRICKS
Studying in a blue room relaxes your mood and makes you more productive, which is great for finishing up assignments and homework.
Spray an unfamiliar scent, and chew an unfamiliar flavour of gum while you’re having a study session. 
Before you start your exam, write down the things you think you might need while they’re still fresh in your head at the top of the page such as formulas and vocabulary words. 
'Times New Roman' is the easiest and fastest font to read.
When writing an essay, add the opposing point of view to make the read look at both sides. 
When you’re taking notes, pretend you’re writing them for some else, preferably someone you care about, and imagine them not knowing anything when it comes to the class you’re writing notes in.
Using colours when writing your notes helps you remember faster, avoid using only one colour as it might dull out important information. 
Change your font from 12pt to 14pt when writing essays, it looks the same but increases the number of pages by 1-2.
Cinnamon flavoured gum helps you stay awake, use it for your morning classes. 
Speaking something out loud helps your remember, so always read your notes aloud when you’re studying.
Reading the first and last paragraphs and only running over the middle has the same outcome as reading all of it.
Chocolate has the ability to improve your math skills. 
Always have an alternative email, you never know when it might come in handy.
Cold showers over coffee anyway. It keeps you fresh the entire day, and also helps you stay focused and less tired throughout the day.
Reward yourself with 15-20 minutes of free time with every 45 minutes of studying. 
If you’re pulling an all nighter, sleeping the 20 minutes before the sun comes up helps your body relax and you’ll be less tired. 
Replace the colour tube of your red pen with the blue one. No one steals a red pen, and no one wants it.
Always say yes to extra credit, no matter what your grade is. It can make a huge different seeing as it has the ability to change one percent which can change an entire grade letter. 
ALWAYS DATE YOUR NOTES // ASSIGNMENTS. 
Writing something down is an equivalent of saying something 7 times. 
No matter how much time you have left, do it earlier. You’ll be glad you did.
Be friends with your teachers, you never know what can happen during the school year.
Have a study group, you’ll have friends to explain things to you and vide versa, also you can share notes and finish up homework without feeling like time is passing by slow.
And now an inspiring quote said by my biology teacher to one of my friends who wouldn’t stop looking at the clock, “The time will pass, but you might not pass this class.”

I’m so proud of my T.V. husband. From the moment I met him, I knew he was going to be, like, the next Brad Pitt. He’s so handsome, so kind, and such a talented actor. There’s just nowhere for him to go except straight to the top. I’m only shocked that it hasn’t happened already. I’m just so excited for the world to see him if they haven’t already. Because he’s brilliant and I love him and now he has rock-hard abs. Which is just a bonus.
It seems like the Internet has a big crush on Chris … do you feel like it is encroaching on your territory at all?
I have major jealousy [issues] but we start shooting Parks and Recreation next week so I am glad to have him all to myself because if anyone tries to get with him, I will destroy them
