Despite Progress, Forced-Adoption Practices Persist Throughout the United States
This year has been a good year so far for an international community of mothers seeking redress for millions of forced adoptions that took place in the fifties, sixties, and seventies. In February, Australian legislators announced a plan to apologize for the coercive practices that unnecessarily separated thousands of families during this time. In March, Canada's forced adoptions began receiving media attention, with many activists calling for a federal inquiry similar to the one that revolutionized adoption in Australia. And just last week, American adoption victims from the aptly named Baby Scoop Era finally received some recognition for their losses when "Dan Rather Reports" featured their stories on national television.

Guest column: Agency should do more to keep families together
Thirty-five years ago, as a young reporter for Wisconsin Public Radio, I produced a series of reports on child abuse and foster care. I was stunned to find that what was then the state Department of Health and Social Services didn't even know how many children were in foster care or how long they stayed in care. We had to send out our own survey to all 72 counties.

Concern over delays in finding adoptive families for children
CHILDREN across the town who are placed into care are waiting longer to be adopted than their peers across the country.
Note: Perhaps if they weren't stealing so many kids, they wouldn't be having this problem.
