Adoption makes a big difference in a child's life

The children live with their new families for at least six months before the adoption is finalized.

Dozens of kids and foster parents feeling extra special this National Adoption Day as 50 adoptions were finalized Friday in Miami in a combination effort between Our Kids of Miami Dade and Monroe, The Children's Trust and the Department of Children and Families.

"We just decided that we had enough love and time and dedication to give to children, a home and a family that children may never have an opportunity to have", Gruler said. "There's nothing that could change that, I mean it'd be hard to look at [his] face and not fall in love with him", said Greg Blodgett, dad.

Brooke told us, "We're just excited".

But for 16 children in Snohomish County, they just could not wait to get in front of a judge.

The amount of medical attention for these boys may be extensive, but their parents' love for them is endless.

In another adoption, 4-year-old Jesse Ray Cohn can't help but share his enjoyment with his new brothers Haiden and Jaxon.




Joshua and wife Amber Ley Cohn said, "If I couldn't have kids, I wanted to adopt".

Her youngest daughter is no longer able to take care of her son and Hernandez was determined he wouldn't end up in the foster care system.

The Zuniga family is one of 30 families adopting through Buckner Children and Family Services this year.

We also want to remind you that every Tuesday's right here on KFDX and our sister station KJTL is Tuesday's Child.

She said the family is going to catch their breath before taking in more foster kids, but adopting another child isn't out of the question.

Details on that, plus more on the adoption process, can be found by visiting Tuesday's Children.
