LISTEN: Adoption During The Pandemic

Nov 19, 2020

Much has been made about how the pandemic we're all living through has severely hampered things like air travel, dining out and gathering for holidays. Something that’s not talked about as much is the chilling effect the pandemic seems to have had on adoptions and foster kids in Connecticut.

According to the Connecticut Examiner, just 155 adoptions statewide were granted between March 1 and October 25 of this year, compared with 361 in the same period during 2019. To talk more about this, Deputy Commissioner of the Department of Children and Families in Connecticut Michael Williams joined Connecticut Public Radio's All Things Considered.
