Matt and Melanie Capobianco handed over their Native American adoptive daughter Veronica, 3, to her biological father in Oklahoma under the federal Indian Child Welfare Act.
The show will elaborate on the 1978 federal law, and will feature the Capobianco’s and other families that have been affected by it.
Chrissi Nimmo, the assistant attorney general for the Cherokee Nation, is also scheduled to make an appearance.
The show will air locally Thursday at 4 p.m. on WCBD Channel 2.
