Foster Dad Breaks Down the Latest in His Battle to Bring Back the 6-Year-Old Girl Who Was Seized From His Home Over Her Native American Heritage

 


A foster family that lost custody of a 6-year-old girl due to the 1978 Indian Child Welfare Act — a federal law mandating that “Indian children” be raised by Native Americans — isn’t backing down.

Foster dad Rusty Page told The Church Boys podcast on Monday that he and his wife, Summer, are continuing to pursue legal appeals in an effort to try and bring Lexi, who is one-and-a-half percent Choctaw Native American, back to their home after the Los Angeles County Department of Children and Family Services removed her on March 21 and placed her with extended relatives who live in Utah.
