Adopting baby who is 1/4 Native American
Friday afternoon we received the call we have been so anxiously waiting for. We have been chosen by a mom who is due in July. The baby is a little boy, and he is 3/4 Caucasian and 1/4 Native American (Navajo Indian). Our Adoption Specialist (AS) told us that after the baby’s birth there is a waiting period of approx 10 days for the court to grant us custody b/c it involves the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA). Does anyone have any experience adopting a child with Native American heritage? Thank you for any insight you may be able to provide.
