Families celebrate National Adoption Day in Kennewick
KENNEWICK, Wash. - In honor of National Adoption Day a special ceremony was held at the Benton County Justice center in Kennewick.
On Friday families welcomed and celebrated foster children becoming official members of their family.
Celebrating a family for every child was the theme for this year's National Adoption Day and among the group was one lucky little girl who now gets to call her foster family her forever home.
Her parents said they had been contemplating adoption for several years and then they got a call about a baby without a home and knew they had to make a difference.
Across the state, more than 17,000 foster children are in search for a family.
