Rep. Wakeman talks about House passage Tuesday of a bi-partisan package of legislation designed to improve the state’s adoption and foster care systems, based on recommendations lawmakers heard from foster care kids, families and professionals in 2021. Rep. Wakeman’s HB 5978 requires the Department of Health and Human Services to help connect foster children to family members and friends. The plan also coordinates trauma- informed training for attorneys working on behalf of kids in the foster care system.
