Couple finalizes adoption on Christmas Eve

A heartwarming story from KFYR, Bismarck:

While many people enjoy spending time with family on Christmas, a Bismarck couple grew theirs.

Casey & Chad are an example of adoptive parents who, through openness in their adoption, were able to meet and begin to establish a relationship with their son's birth family,” said Sue Grundysen, Lutheran Social Services Adoption Option director. “This greater sense of understanding and increased compassion will go a long way in helping Gus to grow up feeling loved by so many.”
