Families Sue DCS Over Adoption Payments

More than 1400 families are now suing the Indiana Department of Child Services claiming that DCS promised to pay them up to $28 a day for each special needs child they adopted but haven’t since 2008.

The agency denies that more that $230 million that was returned to the state during that time could have been used to pay the subsidies.

A Notre Dame study commissioned by the families shows Indiana adoptions have declined by more than 80-percent since the subsidies stopped since many families can’t afford to raise the special needs children.
