Here in Minnesota the state goverment has been shut down since July 1st. There was a budget stalemate or something. I really don't pay a lot of attention to those kinds of things. I'm a little busy, you know.
It hasn't affected us directly but two years agp, it would have impacted our lives significantly. We would have been stuck in Florida, indefinitely, waiting for our paperwork to be accepted and cleared by the Minnesota agency responsible for adoptions.
I know there are many families affected by this shutdown- dad's that are out of work, support services for special needs children, etc.- But when I heard the story of this family stuck in Cedar Rapids, IA, the impact of this shutdown really hit home.
