Adoption bill gains support of both parties

As the partisan divisions in Congress make headlines, lawmakers from both parties have found a bill they can agree on, involving children in other countries in orphanages who are waiting to be adopted. The new legislation, known as the Children in Families First Act, would facilitate foreign adoptions as these numbers have been dropping because of the red tape and paperwork that seems to accompany them. Supporters of the family law measure feel that policies enacted by the State Department haven't encouraged foreign adoptions. While exact figures aren't known for the number of children around the world in orphanages, estimates place the count in the millions.

Technology is changing the face of adoption

The Internet has changed the way people in Colorado and across the U.S. view adoption. The Donaldson Adoption Institute conducted a survey of different people involved in adoption, including birth parents, adoptive parents, adoptees and professionals in the field. They found a number of benefits from using the Internet, such as the availability of information and support groups. However, instances of fraud, manipulation and attempts to control others, especially pregnant women, could mean undue pressures on someone who is thinking about adoption.

Father gets hearing in custody case

Colorado residents may be interested in the developments of a case involving a father who is fighting for custody of his 6-year-old daughter. The ordeal started in Colorado when the birth mother was still pregnant with the girl. The father filed a paternity petition in Colorado, but the mother then traveled to Utah, where she gave birth to the girl and gave her up for adoption. The adopting parents are the birth mother's brother and sister-in-law.
