More than 70 Connecticut Foster Kids Adopted by New Families

Montgomery Counnty CPS Board President Terri Jaggers speaks during the annual Montgomery County Adoption Day Wednesday Nov. 15 2017 in Conroe

There are more than 5-thousand children available for adoption in the US and about 75 of those are right here in Wichita Falls.

Rhode Island's Family Court in Providence will finalize 23 adoptions with 17 different families for National Adoption Day Saturday.

"We watch these children come in abused, neglected and abandoned and now we watch them leave in a safe loving nurturing home", said the Honorable Cindy Lederman from the Eleventh Judicial Circuit Court Judge in Juvenile Division.

Through contributions from community sponsors, costumed characters, mascots, and a balloon artist welcomed and entertained the children, while professional photographers took portraits of the new "Forever Families" and will be donating framed prints to each family in order to forever commemorate the moment. "I mean, you can't help but love her, whenever you see and you spend time with her, you just fall in love with her". After today, 15 families will have 21 new faces around the Thanksgiving table.

Brooke said, "The timing worked out ideal and sometimes in life, timing is everything and just believe that God worked the timing out in our favor and that she was always supposed to be here".

They also adopted their 4-year-old daughter Courtney. "It's something you can really cherish". Parents Stanley and Letisha already have two grown adult children, but say its their drive to help others that has brought them to this point. So Quinn, now 24, began the long training process to adopt Ireland and got her own apartment in Rahway so he could move in. "We always talked about having some and adopting some whenever we were dating and after we got married, we weren't able to have kids so then we've just got into foster care and adopted through foster care".

The Zuniga family is one of 30 families adopting through Buckner Children and Family Services this year. So many probably felt a tug on their heartstrings when reading Monday's Reading Eagle story about children in Berks, Lehigh and Northampton counties - more than 1,700 of them - who entered foster care in 2015.
