LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — Hundreds of Arkansas kids are only wishing for one thing this holiday season, a family to call their own. For some– that wish is coming true– after an adoption event today called “Candyland Christmas.”
Project Zero and the Arkansas Department of Human Services teamed up to help provide forever families for more than 200 Arkansas children. More than 60 families came out to the event Saturday afternoon – hoping to find new additions for their families.
“We’re excited. It’s neat to have your first Christmas together,” says Brad Sims, who adopted two teenagers at a prior Project Zero event.
There are 375 kids waiting for adoption across the natural state. Organizers say they hope to have 25 kids adopted from this years event.
