Hello Dear Reader,
Sister (Mary) Sneed suggested that Grandpa (Wes) and Grandma (Mary) Carter go ahead and make application to the Utah Welfare Department despite the North Carolina laws. They were so anxious to have another child that they followed her advice. A man came, interviewed them, and sent his findings to the NC Welfare Department.

It wasn't long until Grandpa and Grandma received a letter from Sister Sneed saying that North Carolina had turned them down. Along with North Carolina laws forbidding interratial adoption the study that was done indicated that the Carters were too religious, had too many children of their own, and the youngest child of the family(LeAnn) was too much older than the little Indian boy.

Grandpa said, "We were very discouraged and [gave] up all hope."
