The "Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act" is the current law on the books that grew out of the legal changes made during the Copeland Kidnappings. At the time there was nothing beyond a misdemeanor to enforce the home state custody order and prevent parental kidnappings. The Uniform Child Custody Jurisdiction and Enforcement Act has been adopted in forty-nine of the fifty states.

Cecilia Copeland, the screenwriter, is one of the children who were taken in the Copeland kidnappings. She is a writer who lives in New York. Most recently she is known for her award winning pilot, TALTRIX winner of Best TV Pilot Screenplay LA Femme International Film Festival, among others, based on her novel SURVIVING THE GAUNTLET. On writing THE COPELAND KIDS, Copeland had this to say, "When I saw what was happening at the border to so many children and parents, I couldn't stand by and do nothing. I know the long term effects of being separated from your parent at a young age. The best way I can help make people understand is to tell my story."
