More Kansas kids finding new homes

It’s encouraging that there has been an increase in the number of adoptions finalized in Kansas. There were 777 adoptions finalized in the 2012 fiscal year and 761 finalized in 2011. Those numbers were up from 721 in 2010, though fewer than the 816 finalized in 2009. “Adoption is a beautiful example of the power of family to change the course of a child’s life,” said Gov. Sam Brownback, who has made adoptions a priority. “All children deserve to grow up with parents who love them and are committed to them.”
