Courtrooms all over the country celebrated the legal recognition of many forever families just several days ago. National Adoption Day means that courtrooms were full and hearts were grateful. In Bellingham, Washington, as in many cities, teddy bears were given to adoptees who were given the gift of family.

Even the very young, who may have been living with their adoptive families for quite some time, feel the energy and excitement on this special day when their adoptions are finalized. It is a time of rejoicing, indeed!
