Darcy Akers Ball
23-year-old woman in the middle of separation was continually contacted by her pastor to give up her children. At the request of her husband the pastor contacted Tampa lawyer, Gregory Boyer, who misled Darcy Akers Ball and made her sign adoption papers in his van in her driveway to relinquish all three of her children. He didn't explain Ball's rights, didn't give her time to read the papers and didn't ask if she was sure about her decision.
