Wapello County Adoption Saturday

November 23 \\ 9:00 am

On Saturday, November 23, 2019 Wapello County Juvenile Court will celebrate our 11th National Adoption Day event. This year we expect to celebrate adoptions for sixteen children who are being adopted after having been involved in Iowa’s child welfare system. Judge Owens will open the event with a few remarks, and introduce the key-note speaker, Carrie Simons, a licensed foster parent and adoptive parent, who will share her experience with adoption.
The event is sponsored by: American Home Finding Association, 8th Judicial District Court Administration, Four Oaks Foster and Adoptive Family Connections, and Ottumwa’s Hy-Vee Food Store.
