Foster children find new families just in time for the holidays

Posted: Updated:
HOUSTON (FOX 26) -

More than two dozen children living in foster care will spend the holidays with their new families.

Wednesday marked the seventh annual "Adoption Day" at the Montgomery County Courthouse.  Twenty-six families formally adopted 33 children.

This was one family's second year of adding another child to their home.

"When we got the girls in our home, I asked Gary, ‘Do you think you could feel any different about a child that is biological?' and he said, ‘I don't think I can have any stronger feelings than more than what we do for them,' and the same goes for our little guy."

Montgomery County's efforts are a part of National Adoption Day which raises awareness of the more than 100,000 in foster care waiting for a permanent home.
