adoption

Cinderella, Prince Charming, Belle, Snow White, Ariel, Sleeping Beauty and Elsa were all in attendance for the adoption celebration of 5-year-old Danielle. It was Danielle's love of Disney princesses that sparked the idea from the folks at Samaritas foster care.

The memorable day was finalized by Judge Gardner (dressed a Snow White). Jim and Sarah Koning of Grand Rapids had been taking care of Danielle since 2014 and also celebrated the adoption of Neveah, Danielle's new 1-year-old sister.

For the first time ever in Indiana, you can return your new baby to the proper authorities like a video rental (remember those?). America has "safe haven" laws which makes it legal for people to surrender unwanted children, as long as the baby is unharmed and given to the proper authorities or a hospital. 

These climate controlled boxes are meant to allow people to drop off their kid anonymously, knowing that it will be taken care of by emergency services who will arrive within minutes of an automatic alarm. 



It's a controversial issue, with some people questioning how safe it would be to leave a baby in a drop box for several minutes alone. Other people are just glad that babies who might otherwise have been left where they wouldn't get help will be able to have a safe spot to wait for a pickup by a medical professional.

Tristan, a third-grader in Missouri, was selling cups of lemonade for a dollar outside of the Davis’ family yard sale to help raise money for adoption fees. Over the last four years, Donnie and Jimmy Davis have had legal guardianship of Tristan Jacobson but have been unable to come up with enough money to afford the fees.

In the end, the total from the lemonade and yard sale surpassed their initial $5,000 goal, as the family together raised $7,100 to pay for Tristan's adoption. A crowdfunding campaign was also set up that gained $6,900. The additional money will go towards Triston's college education.
