Foster kids officially join their forever families

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - On Friday, 25 local foster kids officially joined their forever families when a San Diego judge finalized their adoptions.

The families celebrated with a party at the Juvenile Court building.
     
It included food, music and a whole lot of love.

One family spoke with CBS News 8 and said they had waited a long time for this happy day.

"We've been trying to complete our family for 11 years, it's taken 11 years to get here. She's such a special girl and now we know that she's going to be in our lives and our family forever," said 

CBS News 8 is proud to partner with the San Diego County Foster and Adoptive Resource Family Services for our weekly Adopt 8 segment which features foster kids looking for their forever homes and success stories.
