Adoption Investigator: Kids Sometimes Placed In ‘Least Bad of All the Bad’ Situations
DES MOINES, Iowa -- Those with a passion for adoption and foster care services are disgusted. "Obviously something needs to be done because kids are dying." Bill Pearce, adoption investigator and board member of Iowans for Adoption, says the majority of foster and adoptive parents are excellent, but more kids need homes and excellent isn't always available. "What you are faced with in a lot of these situations is that all of the choices are bad, so you end up making the least bad of all the bad choices that you had."
