Don't miss our latest cover story, promoted elsewhere on the website, It's Benjamin Hardy's deep look at what happened after state Rep. Justin Harris adopted a child. It is an example of "rehoming" — a subject of some controversy around the country. It means the placement of adopted children in new homes, sometimes without the same degree of scrutiny that the state applies in its placement of children.

In this case, the child was sexually abused in a new home. Her abuser is now serving a 40-year prison sentence.

It's an important story. I hope you'll read it.
