US: How the Indian Child Welfare Act Preserves and Strengthens American Indian Families
Indian Country Today Media Network – June 22, 2017
To this day, I have no idea what made me call my tribal Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) office back in January 2005. “No, there are no children who need homes,” the worker told me. She noted, however, that Bo, a distant cousin of mine, had given birth to a boy a few months ago. She said a white couple I had met took him home from the hospital and were in the process of adopting him.
