Foster Parents Challenge ICWA

The foster parents of a two year old that they have cared for since he was six weeks old are challenging the planned removal of their foster son by CPS due to  the Indian Child Welfare Act of 1978 ("ICWA").  ICWA is a federal law that attempts to keep American Indian children with American Indian families.  CPS has located an Oklahoma couple where both parents are part Native American as prospective adoptive parents for the little boy.  The Couies argue that although heritage is important, the love that they have for their foster child is more important and that it would devastate him to loose his family.
