Adoption – Right to Inherit from Foster Parents Not Lost by Readoption by Natural Father – In an adopted child’s action against the natural children of foster parents and their assigns for the partition of real estate, where it appeared that the child had been re-adopted by the natural father, and where it appeared that she had stood by while the natural children sold the property to the co-defendants, it was held that the right to inherit from the foster parents was not lost by the readoption by the natural father and that she was nct estopped to assert her rights. Holnes v. Curl, et al, (Iowa, 192o) 178 N. W. 406.
