Help Save 6-yr-old Lexi!
URGENT PRAYER: A little 6-yr-old girl was torn from her home Monday, 3/21/16 – taken from the only home she has known and loved to be placed with strangers.
This is due to the Indian Child Welfare Act – which pushes the false and racist notion that children of even a small amount of heritage are somehow different from other children – and do not bond, love or thrive in homes outside of Indian Country.
Tribal governments – which receive more federal money per head – claim it is in the genes.
This racist notion is pushed by media and even our Congress – although no such gene has been shown to exist – and despite testimony of myriad children, adults, and families of heritage across the nation that they are content, happy and thriving in their homes outside of Indian Country.
Many families have left Indian Country because they DO NOT want to be chattel for tribal governments.
– The family of the author of this post is one of them.

Interesting that in this case, Lexi is not going to a Native American home and will not be immersed in tribal culture or heritage. She is being placed with the niece of a step grandfather. So there goes the theory that she will only thrive in Indian country. They don’t really care who raises the child as long as they can dictate and get the money.
Why is little Lexi taken from her foster parents in Santa Clarita? Why was she put in foster care originally? There is some reason why she was taken from her birth parent/parents and put into foster care. The foster care system seem to always advertise for more foster parents, but then something like the situation of the part Choctaw child seen on TV screaming and being torn from adoptive family saddens so many. More and more people will refuse to be subjected to such a heartbreaking situation.
