Declaration of Natural Mother Regarding Native American Heritage
Expectant Parents are advised that Federal Law (the Indian Child Welfare Act) requires that adoptive placement of children with Native American Indian heritage can occur ONLY following specific procedures. Failure to identify and disclose any Native American Indian heritage in your child could jeopardize the security of your placement. You are asked to make a vigorous inquiry of your family regarding the existence of Native American Indian heritage. We are aware of the procedures to assist you in pursuing your adoption plan following receipt of this information.
