Nearly 12-thousand children in Ohio are living in foster homes. That’s 40% fewer than the number about a decade ago. Still, Ohio’s Attorney General says too many of the kids face a life of uncertainty, and too many kids are returned to their original parents to face danger and neglect. That’s why a foster care advisory group has just been created to make recommendations for changing Ohio law. Statehouse correspondent Bill Cohen reports.
