Adoption advocates hope to shed light on how many kids in the BX need homes
Adoption advocates say about 8,000 Bronx kids are left in foster care each year.
As part of National Adoption Awareness month, a non-profit group is hoping to shed some light on how important it is for people to adopt. The group says thousands this year will not have a family to spend the holidays with.
One Bronx woman, who has two biological children, now has discovered the joy of adopting kids and giving them a loving home. She has already adopted one boy and is getting ready to adopt the child's two biological siblings.
The organization says often times people do not adopt for financial reasons. But what they are not aware of is that the government does have funds available to help families financially take care of the kids.
