Adoption Day comes to the Panhandle

Posted: Updated:

Three children were adopted today, and it was a day to celebrate!

But not just for those three, but for all the adoptions that took place in the panhandle this year.

The National Adoption Day Celebration took place at the ESU 13 building in Scottsbluff on Saturday.

Families and children from as far as Lexington came out to have fun and celebrate finding their forever homes.

"We are always very excited to have adoptions come through the court system. We have about 20 to 30 of those a year and even three of them took place today. I understand, judge Warren presided over, so we're always looking for new foster parents." Said Judge Kris Mickey of the Scotts Bluff County Court.

Children and Family Services Administrator Katherine Batt said she works to have foster children remain local if possible.

"There's always a need, we don't like to send kids out of the area to be in foster care. We like to keep them in their community so we need homes in every town and city in the panhandle."

Anyone interested in fostering or adopting a child can call 1-800-7-parent.
