Right now on Indiana Newsdesk… the number of foster families isn’t keeping pace with the demand and thousands of Hoosier children are in limbo. Ahead, what’s behind the increase.

Plus is it possible? New research that could take the guessing game out of how long it will take to sell, or buy a house.

And we’ll have the latest news headlines from across the state. All coming up right now on Indiana Newsdesk.
