21 children find adoptive homes in the Twin Cities

There is nothing more beautiful than the act of adopting a child. It is beautiful for the parents who will get to discover, or rediscover, the joys of parenting. It is just as beautiful for the children themselves, many of whom do not know yet the degree to which their lives will be radically transformed with love and nurturing in their new adoptive homes.

Last Saturday was National Adoption Day, and in the Twin Cities area, 21 children and their adoptive families had something very special to celebrate. The children were officially adopted on this important commemorative day. The adoptions were finalized by District Court judges at the Juvenile Justice Center.

Minnesota Senator Amy Klobuchar appeared at the event to speak with families. In one of the adoption cases, the children were able to stay in their family when a grandmother adopted both of her grandchildren. The grandmother spoke with reporters, saying that the day was very special and exciting.

National Adoption Day is an initiative to bring a higher level of awareness to the countless children -- over 100,000 -- throughout the United States who are living in foster care. These children are desperately in need of homes with willing and open hearts to bring them in and make them feel wanted and loved.

Minnesota parents, grandparents, or soon-to-be parents in search of a child to adopt may want to consider talking to their local foster care program. They may also want to speak to an adoption lawyer to learn about their legal rights and options when it comes to adoption a child into their homes.
