In re A.A., F055097

Juvenile court finding that two preschool age children were adoptable and freed for adoption is affirmed over claims of error raised by appellant mother and Indian tribe that: 1)there was insufficient evidence to support the court's adoptability and active-efforts findings; and 2) the court erred by either not applying a new statutory exception to termination for Indian children, or not ordering the children's change in placement.
