The future of adoption in a post Roe v. Wade world

A baby sleeping.

With Roe v. Wade overturned, and abortion becoming less available, will we see more children placed in foster care and parents seeking adoption?

This hour on Where We Live, we speak with experts and learn whether or not we should expect to see an increase in adoption.

We hear from the Connecticut Department of Children and Family Services Commissioner Vannessa Dorantes.

Later, we hear from Doris Houston, Director of the Center for Child Welfare and Adoption Studies at Illinois State University.

What questions do you have about the future of adoption and foster care?
