Michigan has done a lot to improve the state’s foster care system lately, but there are still problems. Michigan radio recently reported on a lawsuit that several parents have brought against the state’s Department of Human Services for failing to disclose that their adoptive children had special needs, which should have qualified them for federal aid. Apparently, these parents are struggling to pay the bills associated with their children’s treatment. Thankfully, we were given very accurate descriptions of our children’s histories and issues. Adoption is hard enough and I can’t imagine not having the support that we need.
