Families call on ‘800’ numbers : making it easier for people to call home.

When Jeremy and Geoffrey April want to stay after school to work on a class project, they inform their parents by calling the family “800” number. Peggy Fitchwell-Hill has an “800” number for a far different reason. She and her husband, Gary Hill, keep their phone nearby, hoping there will be a birth mother on the other end who wants them to adopt her baby.
