Update on Indiana Legislature
Sadly SB 303 has not even had a second reading yet. The legislator is concerned about an amendment that was added at the last minute. The amendment added is one that allows any child age 2 and older to be considered special needs. I like to think that this has more to do with financial matters more than anything else. If a child is considered special needs, then they will be eligible for both state and federal adoption subsidies. I can't say for sure but it could be that the Senator is worried about situations like Adam Herrman occurring in the state of Indiana. We only have a few more days to worry about this bill.
