  Families that adopt children from foster care can sometimes need help adjusting to the new situation at home.  The New York State Office of Children and Family Services is committing 1.5 million dollars for post adoption services. The Salvation Army in Onondaga County will get a grant of 195-thousand dollars. Executive Director Linda Wright says these programs are essential to help create a lasting family unit.

  Forty children joined loving families Friday at the Oncenter as part of National Adoption Day.  This year’s ceremony was even more special for all of us at WAER.
