If either of a child’s birth parents is Native American, the parent’s tribe must be told that the child is up for adoption. Based on the degree of heritage or if a family member is registered with the tribe, the tribe can

  • decide if the child can join the tribe
  • have the child placed in a Native American home

Most of this depends on how that tribe handles adoptions. Talk to your adoption professional if you or the father is Native American.
