"Spring Fling" hoping to match foster kids with forever families

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - It was a day that just may change the lives of some local foster children. San Diego County Adoptions held its annual "Spring Fling" celebration in Murphy Canyon and each year, there are success stories.

The fun-filled event at Admiral Baker Park matched prospective adoptive parents with foster children who are hoping to find a forever family.

There's music, games, arts and crafts. It gives kids and adults a chance to be carefree and interact with no pressure.

Some families at Saturday's Spring Fling have adopted before and are looking to give another deserving child a loving home.

"It's given us such a passion, which is why we're here again to see if we can bring another child into our home because they give us as much as we give them," one couple said.

The "Spring Fling" was sponsored in part by Rivers of Hope.
