WILLIAMSON COUNTY - Around 20 children were adopted on Friday in Williamson County during National Adoption Day.
The event took place at the Williamson County Courthouse, and included the adoptions of 21 children and one adult, according to presiding judge Amanda Gott.
"I always say that adoptions are the best thing we do in the legal profession. As a juvenile judge who handles abuse and neglect cases on a weekly basis in two counties, I cannot put into words the joy it brings me to grant adoptions to these new forever families. It is particularly special when I was the judge in the juvenile case and then get to be the adoption judge as well," Gott said.
The event also included free drinks and refreshments for participants and families. The event is held each year in November.
