Governor and First Lady Bevin Honor KY Adoptive, Foster Parents

Families recognized for permanent, transitional care of children

By Nicole Burton/Anya Armes Weber

Frankfort, KY - Governor Matt Bevin, First Lady Glenna Bevin, and Cabinet for Health and Family Services (CHFS) officials recently honored several families from across the Commonwealth for their service as adoptive and foster parents to some of the state's most vulnerable children.

"We are determined to make Kentucky the gold standard to make this truly as fine a place to be a foster child as anywhere in America," said Gov. Bevin. "Thank you for caring enough to step outside of your comfort zone and to take on this incredible responsibility. This makes a powerful difference in the Commonwealth."

Families from each of the nine CHFS Department for Community Based Services (DCBS) service regions, as well as a Foster Family of the Year and an Adoptive Family of the Year, were recognized at a recent Governor's Mansion reception. All were selected and honored for their dedication to caring for children in custody of DCBS or making the commitment of adoption.

Kentucky voters embrace Marsy's Law

By Deborah Yetter, Louisville Courier Journal

A measure meant to give crime victims the same rights as the accused perpetrators passed Tuesday, making Kentucky one of a handful of states to adopt a law pushed by the brother of a California college student who was murdered in 1983. Known as Marsy's Law, the measure would amend the state constitution to give crime victims legal protection equal to defendants in criminal cases.
