On Saturday, November 17th beginning at 9 a.m. in Courtroom 5370 of the Mecklenburg County Courthouse, children from four different agencies, Another Choice for Black Children, Children's Home Society, Christian Adoption, and Mecklenburg County Department of Social Services, are scheduled to be adopted.
Nearly all are currently in Mecklenburg County’s foster care system. The adoptions will be finalized during a special session of court, followed by a reception to celebrate the new families.
The event, part of National Adoption Day, is free and open to the public.
For the ninth year in a row, Mecklenburg County Juvenile Court, the Mecklenburg County Clerk of Superior Court’s Office, Mecklenburg County Department of Social Services, and the Guardian Ad Litem program are co-sponsoring this event.
The court session will be presided over by District Court Judge Louis A. Trosch, Jr.
