13 children find forever homes in Odessa


Seven families changed the lives of 13 children on Friday for National Adoption Day.

It really does blow my mind when i think about children in foster care who don’t have an advocate or family.

Gabrielle Paulo

We felt like it was what God was asking us to do in fulfilling the need for foster care in our community.

Aaron Zapata

Dozens of people were in attendance at the Lego-themed adoption event at Crossroads Community Church.

More than 65,000 children have been taken into homes at National Adoption Day events since 2000.

There are still many more who go unadopted and both Zapata and Paulo say that National Adoption Day is all about raising awareness for children who need homes.
