Utah custody fight complicated by tribal law

There are 1 comment on the The Associated Press story from Dec 24, 2008, titled Utah custody fight complicated by tribal law . In it, The Associated Press reports that:

Heather and Clint Larson hoped they'd be spending Christmas with a newly adopted 6-month-old boy. Instead, after a monthslong court battle, the couple had to hand him over to representatives of the birth mother's American Indian tribe and watch him being driven away.

'It was horrific. We lost our child,' said Heather Larson, 29, of South Jordan.

The wrenching, personal struggle for both sides has been complicated by a jurisdictional fight over who has the authority to decide what should happen to the boy, named Talon.

It's a shame the Utah Family has to go thru this.

This poor baby was born with drugs in his system and is returned to his addict birth mother. He'll probably end up in foster care at a later time when he could have been raised in a stable enviroment in Utah.

The 'system' is failing this child at such a young age.
