National Adoption Day
Across the country, families are gathering in courtrooms for a very happy occasion. It’s National Adoption Day, a day to celebrate children who were once “wards of the state” as they transition into their forever families.
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.
