Child Advocates and Its Partners Celebrate National Adoption Day

Fort Bend County 328th and 387th and 505th District Courts Finalize 25 Adoptions

 

The Honorable Ron Pope, The Honorable Brenda Mullinix, and The Honorable Judge David Perwin finalized 25 adoptions including the adoptions of 7 children from the foster care system on Friday in celebration of National Adoption Day. The Fort Bend County 328th, 387th, and 505th District Courts joined courts across the country in opening their doors on National Adoption Day to complete adoptions and celebrate all families who adopt.

 

“This year’s National Adoption Day was a wonderful celebration” said Metoyer Martin, CASA program director and chair of the event. “It is always great to see the attorneys, CPS, Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) volunteers and judges all work together to finalize the adoptions and ultimately give these children safe, permanent and loving homes. It is great to see them all settled in loving homes.”

 

Here in Fort Bend County, the District Courts, Child Advocates of Fort Bend (CAFB) and its partner agencies: Texas Department of Family Protective Services, Fort Bend Bar Association, Fort bend county Child Welfare Board, Fort Bend County Attorney’s Office, Fort Bend Lawyers Care, the Fort Bend Court Team for Maltreated Infants and Toddlers, H.E.B., Bikers Against Child Abuse and the Rosenberg Exchange Club worked together to celebrate the joys of adoption and encourage more families and individuals to give children permanent homes through adoption.
