National Adoption Day
County surrogate Patricia Jones is quick to remind anyone who asks that Camden County routinely is in the upper echelon when it comes to adoptions in New Jersey.
There are more than a 100,000 children and foster care waiting to find permanent, loving families.
Eighteen families got official approval of their adoptions at Philadelphia Family Court, which also organized a party for the kids.
A Mummers band played and the new families smiled as 30 foster children were officially adopted into new families.
