The State of Adoption There are hundreds of children in Northeast Ohio in need of a family and thousands around the world. And there are many families seeking to adopt children. On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll look at the state of adoption in our region and we'll examine the process for those who pursue international adoption. We'll also meet with a Medina family that doubled in size on Christmas day with the adoption of six siblings from the Phillipines. Wednesday at 9 on 90.3.
