To Whom It May Concern; I am writing in reference to my son, …who was placed in foster care due to the irresponsible acts of my ex-husband…. an enrolled member of the … Indian Nation, as I , myself, …, am a member of the … Tribe. Before my son was removed from his fathers residence I had made several attempts to have him returned to my custody here….
Unfortunately, I learned through a caseworker that my son had been removed from (his Dad’s) residence because of drugs found there. Immediately I contacted the caseworker and notified her that I wanted my son returned here to me… Now, after several months of back and forth communications with the State… , I am told that he will be placed in another foster home due to the fact that his foster parents at this time will be relocating…. Could you please advise me as to what my options are regarding this situation and how I can go about this legally without hurting my son more than he has already been hurt. I love my son very much. I need him in my life as much as he needs me, to get stability and return to the quality of life we once shared before all this took place. I will answer any questions needed to provide you with more information to understand my problem. Thank you very much for your time and understanding.
