LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WHAS11) -- Kentucky's senior senator Mitch McConnell is introducing a resolution that would help Kentucky families adopting from the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

The senate resolution that McConnell co-sponsored calls for the lifting of an exit permit suspension.

It has prevented about 800 children from leaving the area who are in the process of being adopted by American families.

More than 20 families in Kentucky are affected and McConnell said he remains in contact with most of them who are stuck in limbo.
