“Kid Connection” on Twin Cities Live
For more than a decade, MN ADOPT collaborated with 5 Eyewitness News to produce a news segment called Thursday’s Child. This recruitment effort has raised awareness of Minnesota’s Waiting Children and contributed to permanency for youth.
The feature is now called “Kid Connection” and each month, Kelli Hanson from Twin Cities Live profiles an awaiting child.
The expanded feature airs on Tuesdays on Twin Cities Live, between 3:00-4:30 p.m. on 5 Eyewitness News and re-airs at 12:37 a.m. Each child’s story can also be viewed on the “Kid Connection” page on the Twin Cities Live website or below.
