3 brothers find a South Plains forever family on National Adoption Day

There was plenty of clapping in courtrooms across Connecticut Friday due to "National Adoption Day".

"National Adoption Day is important to spread awareness, there are so many children that need homes, that need permanent homes", Judge Theresa Slade said. Since its inception in 2000, National Adoption Day has helped almost 65,000 children across the country move from foster care to forever families.

"These guys are really special", Mitchell Balzer said.

Numerous children in the foster system have a background of abandonment and neglect, and the family has to work hard to build good relationships, she said. A year ago alone about 4,700 children were adopted on National Adoption Day and since the day's inception in 2000, about 65,000 have been adopted.

Gentry, whose office has to deal face-to-face with many of those situations that send kids to foster care, addressed the crowd.

While he and his wife had thought about adopting in the past, he said they were hesitant until they received a special call.

Russ Eyer said he was glad National Adoption Day brought attention to the foster care system for at least one day a year. "Our dedicated volunteers work hard to build a positive relationship with these children, and make certain that they provide a voice for them and protect their best interests".
