My husband and I are foster parents. In April 2008 we received placement for a 3 month old baby, whose mother had gotten picked up and sent to jail. Here we are in Feb 2009 and we still have her. We have expressed wishes to adopt her but CPS told us that the tribe (Navajo) who also happen to live over 1000 miles away, want her. They have never asked for her , her “relatives” have never asked for her but yet they want to place her with them. We are the only family she knows….What can we do?????
