Adoptive parents to get help

Four hundred families still don’t know what will become of the bankruptadoption agency that promised to connect them with children fromEthio­pia, Haiti and Zambia, but the province said that, whateverhappens, it will try to help them complete their adoptions.

Four hundred families still don’t know what will become of the bankrupt adoption agency that promised to connect them with children from Ethio­pia, Haiti and Zambia, but the province said that, whatever happens, it will try to help them complete their adoptions.

The families were left in the lurch when Cambridge-based Imagine Adop-tion went belly-up this month.

“Really, the key factor is whether the agency will emerge from bankruptcy,” said Kevin Spafford, spokesperson for Children and Youth Services Minister Deb Matthews.

The province has been pushing the federal government to quickly issue visas for 45 Ethiopian children who have been matched with adoptive parents.
