Girl, 6, To Be Ripped From Only Family She Knows Because She Is '1.5 Percent' Native American, They Are White


A six-year-old little girl by the name of Lexi is about to be ripped from the only family she knows due to the fact she has 1.5 percent native American blood.

The little girl has been living with Summer and Rusty Page for the past five years as a foster child. The family has attempted to adopt the little girl, but has run into numerous road blocks due to her tiny portion of native American blood. Thanks to the Indian Child Welfare Act, children with native American blood can only live with families with native American blood of their own. Unfortunately, the Page family is white.
