There is a 6 year old little girl who has been ripped away from the only family that she has ever known. Her name is Lexi. The first year of her life she moved from foster placement to foster placement. Lexi has been with a loving, stable family for nearly five years and is thriving and a happy, healthy little girl. To Lexi this family is her everything - her mommy, daddy and brother and sisters. Unfortunately, since Lexi is 1.5% Choctaw, the state of California and LA County have allowed the Indian Child Welfare Law to devastate this family and abduct Lexi from her Mommy and Daddy on Monday to move her to Utah to live with a non-blood related family who aren't even members of the tribe, providing heartless and false justification. I'm pleading with you to please sign our petition & pass this around to everyone you know. LA County & California need to know that Lexi's rights, stability and permanence matter! Yes, this happened in America, let's make sure Lexi comes homes & it doesn't happen again!
Here is a link to the Court of Appeals decision regarding how the ICWA law should consider best interests of a child: http://www.courts.ca.gov/opinions/archive/B252999.PDF
Please sign this petition so we can fight for justice for Lexi, whose only desire is to come HOME to her mommy, daddy, sisters, brother and friends.
Here's how you can show love and support to the family:
