The Kansas Adoption Process

From the Lawrence Journal World: Audit disputes adoption delays

It is vital to make it as easy as possible to get through the adoption process, especially for "slam dunk" cases.

It's a shame that there are cases of people delaying the adoption process because they will lose money they receive through the foster care system, but I guess that is some people's reality. In a way that makes it seem like it's all about the money instead of the love of those kids, but if they are willing to adopt children that would otherwise be "unmarketable" (I hate to use that word, but can't think of any others off the top of my head), and they don't have the income without state assistance, I can't criticize them for looking at the money issue. The most important thing is for those kids to have a loving family that is permanently theirs.
