We examine adoption in Illinois after a recent incident in Florida in which a teen went before his church congregation and pleaded for someone to adopt him.

How many children are looking for families in Illinois and how long do they typically spend in foster care? What is the procedure for adopting a child, and who is eligible to adopt?

Kate Buchanan, the associate director of the Child Care Association of Illinois, is one a guest, along with Beverly Jones, vice president and chief program officer for Lutheran Child and Family Services of Illinois.
