April 22, 2020. Covid-19 Updates. With the various state governments beginning to lift restrictions, we are resuming Newscap on a somewhat irregular basis. The devastating effects of Covid-19 pandemic has not spared unparented children. There are children who are trapped in orphanages around the world whose potential adoptive parents cannot travel to bring them to new homes in the United States. Some of these children will now never be adopted because they have reached the age of 14 or 16 when children age out and are no longer eligible for adoption. Children in foreign orphanage care are suffering shortages and limitations on care. On a different topic, we would like to draw attention to a newly enacted law in New York which has repealed New York's long-standing law against paid surrogacy. More Information.
