In a Dec. 29 article, Therese Cahill-Low, director of Child and Family Services, said the state of Maine pays a daily subsidy of $26.25 per day for each adopted child until each child turns 18, for a total of $10 million per year.

Why are taxpayers subsidizing adopted children? Has no one ever questioned this? That is $10 million that could be put toward much more appropriate use.
