Adoptive agencies come together to raise awareness
CLEARFIELD COUNTY, Pa. -- An adoptive and foster parent recruitment open house was held Saturday in Clearfield.
Look at these kids. They are beautiful, said Ashlee Graham, who has adopted children. They deserve parents, a home and a family that can meet their needs.
Graham and her husband adopted Riley and Giddian.
We had the desire in our own heart to be parents and a bigger desire to help our community and the kids in our area, said Graham.
Jennifer Poosey had the same idea. She adopted her three kids from China. One child, Fey, was adopted from a orphanage, has special needs and is receiving unconditional care from her new parents.
Just taking in a child that has nothing, said Poosey. Its their whole world.
Christine Kutch from the statewide adoption network works with the children youth and family services in Clearfield. He received a grant and held the adoption event.
When you have a child that is matched with a family, that will bring out the best in the child and that is when it becomes real, Kutch said.
An attorney on hand explained the legal system had a key part in the process.
First place to start is to find that special person to adopt, said attorney Chris Pentz. Certainly second place is to meet with the attorney of what the steps are, and it can be an expensive putting for parents.
The unconditional love of a child is something that money cannot buy.
