GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KREX)–November 18th is National Adoption Day, and thousands of children in the foster care system need a forever home. Mesa County Human Services hosted an event at the courthouse in hopes of ensuring those loving homes for several kids, and to celebrate the families who have adopted or are looking to adopt.

It’s important for kids in the system to find a forever home, for so many reasons. One of those reasons is children need stability in their lives in order to develop normally. That’s why Mesa County hosts events like this one—ultimately, it’s for the kids.

These kids need loving homes, they need families, they need a family to call their own. If you’re one of the many people out there who want to have kids–adoption may be the way to go. It just might change a life.
