Many American families are in a painful limbo this morning because of a new Russian law that goes into effect tomorrow banning U.S. adoptions. For the past 13 months, Kendra and Jason Skaggs have been in the process of adopting a five year old girl with special needs named Polina. A Russian judge granted the Skaggs' adoption petition on Christmas Eve but it requires a 30 day waiting period. The Skaggs family already considers Polina a part of the family but the new law has them feeling unsure as to whether they will be allowed to bring their daughter to the United States. This morning Kendra Skaggs joins “Starting Point” from Los Angeles to share her story.
