After all the papers are signed there will be a celebration and families will be honored by courthouse workers and volunteers for the event.

This is the 21st year for the celebration which has led to nearly 1,300 adoptions over the last two decades, many of them were neglected or abused.

Even if you aren't in a position to foster or adopt a child, you can still help by becoming a volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate for kids in foster care.
