Adoption Matching Event in Lehigh County Tonight

Lehigh County Children and Youth will host an “Adoption Matching Event” tonight between 5-8 p.m. in the Public Hearing Room of the Lehigh County Government Center in Allentown.

The goal is to pair prospective parents with one of the more than 180 children in Pennsylvania children who need a home. Caseworkers will be on hand to answer questions and give insight into the personalities and lives of the children they represent.

Last year, five children found homes through the matching event.

Photos of 40 Pennsylvania children waiting for adoption will be displayed in the Government Lobby as part of the state’s Heart Gallery Exhibit. Every few weeks the gallery moves to a new location in the state to reach as many people as possible.

The Heart Gallery will be in Lehigh County until April 30.

This is a wonderful effort on behalf of county officials.

This is paid for with taxes. Are the Tea Partiers aware of this? Will there be protests?

Conservatives are just glad you didn't kill them. Under Obamacare, future tax dollars will vacuum the little suckers from uteruses before agencies need events like this to get rid of them. It's the progressive approach.

It's great that you posted this. Bernie, underneath your crusty exterior, you seem to actually have a heart.
