51 Children Were Adopted Out of Foster Care Last Month

Every year for the past 13 years, our own adoption attorney, Amanda Andrae, has volunteered for a local event during which a large group of children are officially adopted out of the Texas foster care system. This year, 51 children were adopted, which is the largest group of children to be adopted at the event in years. All of the children who were adopted had been previously removed from their biological parents due to abuse, neglect, or other dangerous circumstances, and many of them had been living in foster care for some time. At this year’s adoption event, these children found their “forever families” and were given a piece of jewelry engraved with the date and their new legal names.

We are proud to have an attorney who helps set up, tear down, pass out food to families, and uses her time and energy to make this event special for the children and families involved, and we look forward to next year’s Adoption Day!
