Children establish legacies on National Adoption Day

Friday was National Adoption Day in Snohomish County and it's a reminder that 100,000 foster children across the country are waiting for their forever families. They could not return to their birth parents, and she said both boys wanted to stay in their new home.

Kids in sport coats and suspenders scurried around a crowded foyer decorated with balloons, while local government and non-profit agencies manned tables advertising resources to new adoptive families as music played over a loudspeaker.

Children like 7-year-old Ariyah.

The courthouse was filled with a celebratory spirit, said Kathleen LaValle, executive director of Dallas Court Appointed Special Advocates, which hosted Saturday's day of adoptions.

"We just decided that we had enough love and time and dedication to give to children, a home and a family that children may never have an opportunity to have", Gruler said.

"I just want to be able to do that for another child because no child should not have a family, everybody should have that because even at 25 I still need parents", Loughin said.
