2014 Adoption Day

Bell County will be hosting its SIXTH Adoption Day Event on Friday, November 14th. So far there are twelve families participating, adopting approximately twenty kids (though those numbers may change before the event!). It is anticipated that opening remarks will be made at 9:30 a.m., with the first cases being called at 9:45 a.m.

If you or your firm are interested in making a donation to help offset the costs, please mail your check, payable to BCBA, to PO Box 282, Belton, TX  76513. Please note "Adoption Day" in the check memo so that your donation is applied correctly.

For those who are new to the Bar, the Adoption Day event is to help finalize and create "Forever Families" for children who have been living in foster car, and who are being legally adopted by these families. The Bar provides each family with a gift bag that includes age appropriate toys for the children, as well as gifts for the parents, a disposable camera for the kids to use, and other goodies! The Bar also purchases pop up Wizard of Oz books for each family, and decorates the courtrooms with a Wizard of Oz theme to make this day exceptionally special for these special families and children!!

If you are at the Courthouse on November 14, even if you're not involved in a case, please stop by the 169th or 264th Courtroom and watch as these families become 'forever' on this memorable day!!!
