Senators want to stop the dumping of unwanted children

Canary Wharf, London, United Kingdom-based international news agency Reuters recently discovered that there are 271 children from all across the United States whose adoption had been advertised via illegal means who are currently in North Carolina.

According to a U.S. Government Accountability Office reported released in September 2015, seven states have commenced on making rehoming illegal as of July 2015, with some states concentrating their efforts on upgrading post-adoption services to serve as help for families with limited means.

During a meeting of the Senate judiciary I committee at the General Assembly Tuesday, June 28, North Carolina Division of Social Services child welfare section chief Kevin Kelly said, ascribing to the Intensive Family Preservation Service program, that, “We provide, through contracted services, skilled social workers who can go into that family, very intensively work with them to address what is often behavioral health needs of the children, but also dynamics that are happening in the family.”
