12 children find ‘forever homes’ on Gregg County Adoption Day
LONGVIEW, Texas (KLTV) - Seven East Texas families adopted 12 children in Gregg County Judge Tim Womack’s 307th district court on Friday.
A spokesperson from Child Protective Services said they chose this day as part of a way to not only bring together families with children in foster care, but also to celebrate and raise awareness of November being National Adoption Month.
One new parent shared his feelings on today.
“You know we went through the court process as far as rights being terminated. It took about 6 months for the whole adoption process to take place. I feel honored, I feel blessed, definitely excited to see how they mature and turn into young men. Couldn’t be any happier,” said Airron Nichols.
