South Carolina holds statewide adoption day

CHARLESTON, SC (WCBD) – It’s a big day for adoptions across South Carolina – November 19th is statewide adoption day.

On this special day, dozens of children are reuniting with families in the Palmetto State.

More than 60 children will be adopted from the South Carolina foster care system in 43 new homes.

News 2 had the opportunity to sit in the courtroom and listen to a few of the hearings. One father says this day is a testament to his faith.

"He is a picture of what God has done for me,” said adoptive father, Jeffrey McCain. “He's someone who's lost and abandoned, and alone.  And through his son, Jesus Christ, adopted me into his family, and I get to follow my God by adopting Zeke into mine.”

Adoptions will take place from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. in Charleston County. They will continue across the state in Anderson, Sumter, and Conway.
