Open Forum: An idea for the former state hospital

I have a great idea for the Brainerd State Hospital campus. We should, through national donations, make it into a National Adoption Agency replete with dorms, doctors, psychiatrists, social workers, airport upgrades, counselors, teachers, psychologists, administrators, secretaries, transportation, nurses, a helicopter, etc.

Can you imagine the donations that would come in from throughout the country to save lives and let the birth mothers see their children on a regular basis which seems to be a main reason that new mothers won’t consider adoption.

Through donations and contributions from the adoptive parents this could be the most beautiful campus in the U.S.A.

Act fast.
