  1. All little kids want and need is to be loved, fed, cared for, valued, and taught lessons in living--too often we justify doing other things than being with with them--sports, entertainment, and electronics.

  2. I need help was always told by my adoptive parents that I
    was Apache but hard to prove.figuring it out because I was put into foster care at birth (1961). I was adopted 3 years later into a Cuban family from St. Vincent Catholic Charities in Miami, FL. 

    All I've been able to find out about my birth mother and family is that I have 3 brothers and 3 sisters. The boys were born in 1951, 53, and 60 and girls were born in 1957, 58, and 59. My brother born in 1957 had a different last name than the rest of my siblings. However, who knows what kind of names they got IF they got adopted. They were all in foster care before I was born and don't even know I exist. My mother was forced to give up her children according to a letter I received from Catholic Charities. I hypothesize the legality of the forcing her to give up her children was due to the Indian Adoption Project (occurred in the US from 1958- approx 1970's). The letter did not provide any information about my birth dad or any other identifying information.

    1. Hi Donna. Good luck with your search. I'm 54% Native American looking for my family. From the bracelet that I was adopted with, my guess is Navajo.

ADOPTION TRUTH

As the single largest unregulated industry in the United States, adoption is viewed as a benevolent action that results in the formation of “forever families.”
The truth is that it is a very lucrative business with a known sales pitch. With profits last estimated at over $1.44 billion dollars a year, mothers who consider adoption for their babies need to be very aware that all of this promotion clouds the facts and only though independent research can they get an accurate account of what life might be like for both them and their child after signing the adoption paperwork.

Why tribes do not recommend the DNA swab

Rebecca Tallbear entitled: “DNA, Blood, and Racializing the Tribe”, bearing out what I only inferred:

Detailed discussion of the Bering Strait theory and other scientific theories about the population of the modern-day Americas is beyond the scope of this essay. However, it should be noted that Indian people have expressed suspicion that DNA analysis is a tool that scientists will use to support theories about the origins of tribal people that contradict tribal oral histories and origin stories. Perhaps more important,the alternative origin stories of scientists are seen as intending to weaken tribal land and other legal claims (and even diminish a history of colonialism?) that are supported in U.S. federal and tribal law. As genetic evidence has already been used to resolve land conflicts in Asian and Eastern European countries, this is not an unfounded fear.
