I may have already answered this question.

However, there is a risk that CBP will question your adult daughter (upon arrival in the U.S.) about taking the child out of the country without authorization from both biological parents.

I would highly recommend you contact the U.S. Consulate & see if they can authenticate some sort of authorization. A letter is useless without proof that it was written by the biological parents.
