Governor Pence shares vision for Indiana to become most pro-adoption state in nation
January 15, 2014
Governor Mike Pence shared his vision for Indiana to become the pro-adoption state in the nation with key remarks made during his January 14, 2014, State of State address before a joint session of the Indiana legislature. Pence, who declared National Adoption Month and hosted an Adoption Awareness Day at the Statehouse in 2013, is also calling for new tax credits to make adoption more affordable for Hoosier families.
Here are the comments from Governor Pence’s State of the State address:
“Adoption is a beautiful way for families to come together forever. We can expand and improve adoption in Indiana. We can improve the way we place children from state care into adoptive homes, and we can support every parent who is willing to lovingly adopt a child into their home. Let’s make it our aim to make Indiana the most pro-adoption state in America.”
