MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Twin Cities agency that handles many Russian adoptions is taking a wait-and-see approach to Russian President Putin’s signing of a bill that would ban adoptions by American parents.

Maureen Warren, the president of the Children’s Home Society, said it remains to be seen if a recent agreement between Russia and the U.S. will hold up.

Warren said her agency handles about 20 adoptions of Russian children each year. Right now, she says seven cases are in jeopardy of not going through. They’re cases where the parents have already been to Russia to meet the orphans they hope to bring home.
