Note from Trace: I will be there and will let you know details afterwards on this blog... If you remember I wrote several posts on this blog and was published nationally in Indian Country Today Media about this case. I conferred with NCAI as well. My feelings now? I believe the Dept. Of Justice needs to interview Veronica's birthmother about her dealings with the Nightlight Adoption Agency. We need the truth and I do not believe we have it yet. In my humble view, this case is not over.
