Governor Bevin and state leaders plead for adoption help.
Governor Matt Bevin and the First Lady joined the leaders from the Cabinet of Health and Family Services on Friday for a foster care summit.
The goal was to explain the problems Kentucky faces and ask more families to adopt.

Bevin became emotional explaining how the family had tried to adopt a child from Kentucky but were rejected. "Children are entering at a higher rate than they are exiting care and that is a problem,” Johnson said.

Bevin said he was going to appoint a foster care or adoption czar to the state.
