A family doubled in size Friday when they adopted five children

Abigail is one of the more than 200 Maricopa County kids who's adoptions were finalized Saturday morning she already loves her new sister

As part of National Adoption Day, November 18, Annabelle's adoption ceremony is one of more than 70 taking place across CT. Under HB 3859, for example, an adoption agency could keep kids in a government group home rather than allowing them to be adopted by loving parents who don't pass an agency's religious test, or could refuse to allow an orphaned child to be adopted by an extended family member like a gay uncle or a transgender grandparent.

Hernandez is the grandmother of four-year-old Prynce and a former foster care child herself. The Wades have adopted twice before, but Wade said the ceremony Friday made the event extra special.

Each year, right around the holiday season, thousands of children get the chance to find that ideal family they've always been looking for. Then, struggling not to cry, he exited the stage.After he returned, Foxx finished the point for the audience, addressing a contestant who had adopted two daughters from Haiti seven years earlier and was competing to win money for their college funds: "But what you don't understand is that when you're a kid, you just want to be loved". "Some of these kids don't have that."And that's why the Children's Home is observing this month as National Adoption Month". But she "clapped just as much for the second family".

Nine children were adopted into six families on National Adoption Day in Union County.

As families called the process "easy", Tipton said those interested need to be 21 years old and financially stable. "We are excited to celebrate the families that are becoming complete today and encourage others to adopt".

"It's always a joyful day", Siebert said. Ireland, who has high-functioning autism, now attends Rahway Elementary School, while Quinn waitresses and is in her third year studying psychology at Rutgers. What a joyous day it was to see a family finally get the happy ending they so desperately deserve.

"He's been the most wonderful, happy baby", Laura said.

The Texas Department of Family and Protective Services say they transformed the courthouse into Despicable Me for good reason.

DCF said National Adoption Day is also created to spread the word about the power of foster care and adoption in the state. "Our dedicated volunteers work hard to build a positive relationship with these children, and make certain that they provide a voice for them and protect their best interests". But now they are raising two young children together. If you are interested in learning more about foster care and/or adoption please visit the U.P.
