National Adoption Day in Pasco

Posted: Updated:

New families came together to celebrate adoption in Pasco on Friday afternoon. This is the first time that the Franklin County Courthouse has celebrated National Adoption Day.

The Feser's were just one of many families that took the opportunity to adopt. Mike and Julee Fesser now get to officially welcome Josiah, Maggie, and Anna into their family. The evening was also a happy one for judge Dennis Yule, himself a father of four adopted children.

One of Yule's adopted children, Marci Yule Brown spoke at the opening ceremony. Miss Tri-Cities, Charlotte Smith also expressed her gratitude as five of her six siblings were adopted. All in all, 12 adoption hearings were held at Franklin County Courthouse today.
