An emotional custody battle over a 6-year-old Santa Clarita, California girl spread around the world this week. Rusty and Summer Page, the foster parents who have raised Lexi over the past four years, were forced to relinquish the child to social workers who would take her to live with extended family in Utah, the dramatic scene playing out in front of cameras. Why? Because Lexi is 1/64th Choctaw and falls under the federal Indian Child Welfare Act.
