MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – It’s something that can change a child’s life forever, and for one Twin Cities native, it’s a subject close to his heart.

Recording artist James Grear conducted a parenting seminar Saturday morning for National Adoption Day at the Hennepin County Health Services Building in downtown Minneapolis.

Grear has adopted 11 children himself.

This free event gave foster parents information about the adoption process.

Some lucky kids also officially became part of a new family. Foster parent Daniel McKizzie welcomed his new daughters with a hug.

“It’s just been a joy to have the girls, and now to have them be officially our daughters, it’s just unbelievable,” McKizzie said. “Words can’t even describe.”

Thrivent Financial was also at the event to help potential parents increase their financial portfolio and live free of debt.
