Cape Coral, Florida (PRWEB) May 17, 2012
Search Quest America is a licensed investigative agency based in Cape Coral, Florida which specializes in one of the fasted growing forms of skip tracing – family search. Since the company was founded in 2008, over 2,000 families have been reunited!

CEO Susan Friel-Williams states, "We recognize our clients’ need to reconnect with missing family and are here to help! Children can be separated from family members through adoption, growing up in the foster care system, or because their parents divorced and they lost touch with a mother or father. Our research professionals understand that search and reunion is a journey of self discovery for our clients. Every one of our research professionals has personal ties to adoption issues.", a free resource for adoptees, birth parents and siblings separated by adoption, has been relaunched. We’d like to thank our Internet design team at Search Quest America for re-designing and releasing our newest version.

We also have a great reunion success to share with you from Pamela Combs Wickel in Washington, who wrote and shared her story: "On January 6, 2012 I found my answers. An investigator left me a message asking for my help in a case she was working on. I can still remember calling Susan at Search Quest America back. I thought my heart was going to pound out of my chest. Could it be me someone is looking for? Well it was and I am so thankful to be found!"
"That evening I spoke to my birth mom, Vicki Caton Buckles for the first time. It was as special as I thought it would be. And my biggest question of all was answered. Yes, she loves me! On April 22, 2012 we met for the first time. It was absolutely one of the highlights of my life. She is as loving, caring, happy, kind, awesome and beautiful inside and out as I had imagined her in my mind to be. I feel whole and complete and I am so grateful to Susan at Search Quest America for that most incredible, life changing day. Thank you for finding me Susan - and Vicki, Thank you for looking. This is the beginning of an amazing future.”

Diane Tells His Name

Please support NARF

Indian Country is under attack. Native tribes and people are fighting hard for justice. There is need for legal assistance across Indian Country, and NARF is doing as much as we can. With your help, we have fought for 48 years and we continue to fight.

It is hard to understand the extent of the attacks on Indian Country. We are sending a short series of emails this month with a few examples of attacks that are happening across Indian Country and how we are standing firm for justice.

Today, we look at recent effort to undo laws put in place to protect Native American children and families. All children deserve to be raised by loving families and communities. In the 1970s, Congress realized that state agencies and courts were disproportionately removing American Indian and Alaska Native children from their families. Often these devastating removals were due to an inability or unwillingness to understand Native cultures, where family is defined broadly and raising children is a shared responsibility. To stop these destructive practices, Congress passed the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA).

After forty years, ICWA has proven to be largely successful and many states have passed their own ICWAs. This success, however, is now being challenged by large, well-financed opponents who are actively and aggressively seeking to undermine ICWA’s protections for Native children. We are seeing lawsuits across the United States that challenge ICWA’s protections. NARF is working with partners to defend the rights of Native children and families.

Indian Country is under attack. We need you. Please join the ranks of Modern Day Warriors. Please donate today to help Native people protect their rights.
