Kandiyohi County kids need adoptive families


WILLMAR -- The need for families willing to adopt children in Kandiyohi County has grown over the last year, with at least 11 kids currently waiting to be adopted.

In 2009 there were no children on the waiting list, which was unusual, said Kandiyohi County Family Services Supervisor Kathy Nelson.

Because of an increase in parental termination in 2010, the number of children needing permanent homes has risen to 11, with three more children likely to be added to the list.
