“You may have been foster parents. You may be part of a familial adoption. You may be single like me, or you may be same-sex couples,” she said. “Our stories demonstrate that families are made in beautiful ways. Our stories demonstrate that all children are deserving of a wonderful and forever home.”
Bowser said that adults are the lucky ones to have been chosen and blessed with the opportunity to raise the children they have adopted.
It warms my heart to know that 31 children started a new life with their forever families.
Thank you to my fellow adoptive parents for representing #DCValues so proudly. Let’s keep working to ensure all children & families in the District receive the support & love they deserve. pic.twitter.com/kFCE5ESiy5
