Iowa children officially adopted on National Adoption Day

Posted:

CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) -- November is National Adoption Month, and Friday we got a rare look at the final steps in a child's transition from foster care to a new adopted family.

Nationally, there are almost 130,000 children waiting to be adopted from foster care.  

"Adoption's important because these kids are wonderful children who have had a rough start and they need a great home," Adoption Day organizer Laura Riley said.

Saturday on the KWWL News at Six, we'll meet one of the familes involved in Friday's adoption.
