16 children find 'forever families' in Snohomish County after official adoption

But she always remembers the advice of a previous adoptive parent who said she would turn to her adoptive children for clarity. "There was no doubt, even before (Caleb) was adopted, that he and Lucy were brother and sister".

Eighteen families adopted 31 children at the Lubbock County Courthouse Friday on National Adoption Day.

Ulysses and his wife Ida were chosen by the boys' birth mother to provide the trio a stable home after caring for them for more than a year.

All of these families have adopted out of the foster care system.

It was also a happy day for the Olt family from New Rochelle. "It's someone to connect with and identify as family".

The Andersons say the thing they look the most forward to with their new family members are having a team of people to play sports with.

"Our hope is to inform our community that there are a variety of ways that you can support children during National Adoption Month". Forty-one of those kids have not been matched to a family.

Experts in the medical community said that a procedure like this would not be allowed in either the United States or Europe. Sergio Canavero said the procedure would take place in China because the USA and Europe would not allow it.

"It is a lot of work but when you're in that courtroom and you're seeing those adoptions finalized and families giving testimonials about what the process was all about and what it was like, it's definitely worth all the effort".

While he and his wife had thought about adopting in the past, he said they were hesitant until they received a special call.

One of the first to be adopted Friday was Kiara, a bubbly 6 ½ year old who has lived with her adoptive parents for about a year.

Not many dry eyes in 78th District Court today, that's because families like the Holley's finally get the chance to bring a bundle of joy home, 2-year-old Tayla Rain Holley. "So celebrating a day like this, is celebrating what Christ did for us too", said Erin Sherrill, Grayden's adoptive mom.

Volunteers are designated to serve one child or sibling group to evaluate their well-being by getting to know them and speaking with any and all relevant contacts in their lives.

Attorney Darrel Ammons, who has worked in adoptions for more than 25 years, said he enjoys attending Adoption Day every year.
