determined that the subscriber cannot remain with his/her/it's birth
parent(s) or legal guardians in one household.  The OUMMCBNOM is committed
through its subscriber placement work to ensure that the subscriber is reared
as OUMMCBNOMish in and OUMMCBNOMish environment or in an environment which
will foster OUMMCBNOMishness.  This does not apply in designated adoptions
where the service may be provided to non-OUMMCBNOMish clientele.  The best
interests of the subscriber will be served in any placement."
