Beginning of Ongoing Collaboration with Local Media
In 1983, MN ADOPT began a professional collaboration with KSTP, a large, local media station, whose leadership also felt called to action to advocate for this vulnerable population through the reach of their media. This relationship resulted in various media features focusing on Minnesota’s waiting children, such as the television feature, Thursday’s Child. This broader scale promotion helped bring awareness of the experiences of Minnesota’s waiting children and the need for adoptive and foster families into the homes of Minnesotans. This collaboration continues to this day and includes the widely popular Twin Cities Live segment, Kid Connection.
