Family Court Judge William Cohen found Lisa Miller of Forest, Va., in contempt of court during a hearing Tuesday and issued the arrest warrant. Miller was ordered to surrender custody of her daughter on Jan. 1 but failed to do so and has since disappeared. Their daughter is now considered a missing person. Miller and Jenkins got a civil union in Vermont in 2000, had the baby two years later and broke up in 2003. Miller moved to Virginia, where she renounced homosexuality and became an evangelical Christian.I've always felt that this case stinks of post-break-up jurisdiction-shopping on Miller's part and I'm glad that they've finally taken this additional step in the process. There's not much more to add except to repeat what I've written before: If you bring a child into the world and/or into your life with another parent and then you break up, suck it up. It's no longer about you. You owe it to your child to do everything in your power to minimize the harm of your break-up on him/her.
