Two Families Get Children on National Adoption Day

November is "National Adoption Month" and in celebration of that Gregg County held it's annual "National Adoption Day." Dozens gathered around a Gregg County courtroom Wednesday as papers were finalized for the adoption of three children.

Two families have been waiting for months to adopt the children, after taking them in for foster care. Afterwards, everyone celebrated with cookies, cake, and gifts.  It's a day, parents say, they will never forget.

Mistie Reeves, one of the new parents, says "an overwhelming, joyous day. It is a day that God has promised and it's been a long time coming, but I thank God for it. Today is our day of new beginnings and I'm just excited for that."
