Local Adoption Agency Taking ‘Wait-And-See’ Approach On Russia

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.
