48 adoptions finalized in Ramsey County


In every court house there are trial dates, but in courtroom 4-A there were only family dates. 

In Ramsey County, 48 children celebrated their forever families on the 18th National Adoption Day on Saturday. 

One of those children is a little girl named Elise Broch. She’s the third child the Broch’s have adopted through foster care. 

“I really push adopting through foster care because there are so many children that are… in foster care that need to be adopted that are waiting for homes,” said Britney Broch, Elise’s new mom. 

On this year’s National Adoption Day several sibling groups and older teenagers were adopted out of foster care. Together the 48 children were adopted into 38 families. 

All of the children were adopted out of Ramsey County, but the families came from all over the state. 

Nationwide there are more than 110,000 children in foster care, waiting for a permanent home and a loving family. 

The Broch’s said they may not be done adopting. They say they have room in their home for more and will continue to consider adopting another child over the next several years.
