The LDS Church will no longer be a full-service adoption agency, with LDS Family Services shifting from front-line adoption brokers to counselors to expectant mothers and families considering adoption.

On Wednesday at 12:15 p.m., Donna Pope of Heart to Heart Adoptions, Becky Davis of Children's Service Society, prospective adoptive mom Sonia Quiroga Thomas and Tribune reporter Kristen Moulton join Jennifer Napier-Pearce to discuss how the change will affect birth moms, adoptive families and adoption services in Utah.
