A dozen ETX children join their forever family

SMITH COUNTY, TX (KLTV) - The lives of a dozen East Texas children changed forever on Thursday.

12 foster children ranging in ages from infants to teenagers officially joined their "forever family."

Kalena Crews is adopting for the second time, and is expanding her family with the addition of 9-month-old Ben.

"Today is beyond meaning. Obviously, it's enlarging our family ... enlarging our hearts. We feel so blessed and overwhelmed," says Crews.

There are still 72 children in Smith County who need a family to show them the gift of love.
