Hello Dear Reader,
Woody's mother, Mary Sneed, corresponded with Grandpa (Wes) and Grandma (Mary) Carter on a regular basis. She was a welfare worker in North Carolina. One particular letter Grandpa and Grandma received from Sister Sneed contained an inquiry that was full of possibilities.

She asked Grandpa and Grandma if they knew of an Indian family in Provo that would be interested in adopting an eighteen-month-old Indian boy. Grandpa and Grandma inquired at the BYU Indian Council but had no success in finding anyone.

They prayed about it, discussed it with the family, and then wrote to Sister Sneed informing her of their findings and asking if it would be possible for our family to adopt the child. She wrote back saying that, according to North Carolina laws, it would be impossible. Who really knew what the possibilities were?
