Valdosta, GA - Some local residents are helping kids to find good homes for the holidays this year.
They held the 10th Annual Candlelight Vigil For Adoption on the steps of the Old Courthouse in Valdosta. Organizers say there are hundreds of kids in South Georgia just waiting for a good home.
"And if this event can cause even one person to say I want to know more about adoption, not to say I want to adopt, but just to say I want to know more about adoption, that would be a great accomplishment," said Cathy Burks, Resource Advisor for the Georgia Center for Resources and Support.
You can learn more about adoption by contacting your local Division of Family and Children's Services branch.
