Governor Mike Pence signed a bill this week designed to improve the adoption system in Indiana.
The law changes the way children are placed into adoptive homes. It allows for additional support to families that are adopting children, including a $1,000 tax break per adopted child starting in 2015. Additionally, the legislation requires starting a study to observe adoption programs across the nation to provide ideas for improving Indiana’s own system.
